Tire size survey


OK guys...

After 10 years is it time to put new tires on the front of my T-Bucket. However it is quickly becoming evident to me that to get the same size tire is going to be a little difficult. First of all I'm running the small TP wire wheel set up with Kenda 120/90H16 motorcycle tires. I love the way the car sits, looks and handles. The problem is that there are next to no tires that size available any more and the ones I do find don't have any real tread pattern . . . they look like slicks with a couple of groves on the sides and just won't look good on the bucket. The next closest tire to that size is about 1/2 wider which is a 5" wide tire on and 3 1/2' rim and I really don't want to go wider than the current 4 1/2" tire.

So finally to my question . . . What are you other bucketheads with the TP wire wheel set up running on your T-Buckets?
