Find the right tires for your Checker

For decades, Checkers were the only purpose-built taxi vehicle in the U.S. Big and boxy, Checkers (think of the 70s TV show “Taxi”) were built to be easily repaired and maintained, with a huge amount of interior room and a chassis and drivetrain that were designed to stand up to years of abuse. Checker even made an extended “airport limo” version with six or eight doors for multiple passengers. The last Checker rolled off the line in Kalamazoo in 1982.

The Marathon is the most common iteration of the Checker, and the Hankook Optimo H724 or Nexen N'Priz AH5 are both excellent choices. There are still some Checker Aerobus vehicles around, and the Hankook Kinergy ST or Firestone Destination LE2 would be a good fit.
