Cadet Drag Slick Tires

Just found this original Cadet ad listing the sizes of drag slicks available. As far as I know the Cadet and Inglewood retreaded slicks were the only motorcycle drag racing tires available before Avon came out with their purpose built slick around 1963.

I'm pretty sure this is a Cadet in the 5.00 X 16 size as used on Sonny Routt's original dual engine Triumph dragbike. Large post on this bike coming soon.
