trim rings and whitewalls

We are in the early stages of restoring an anthrazit '61 Coupe at Lane Motor Museum in Nashville. We've had pretty good luck rounding up most of the parts we need, but have come up short on rolling stock. Can anyone point us to some wide whitewalls (12" wheels) and/or trim rings for same?

 

Thanks!

Ray - yes, that's the one. I never even got to drive it before they started taking it apart. Those that did said it was a lot of fun.

Scotty - no, not at all, but we can find blackwalls here in the States. We're hoping to find wide-ish whitewalls like those that came on some of the Lux(?) cars shown in period brochures.Want to talk about cost prohibitive? Try finding rear tires for a Renault R5 Turbo 2! Last year, Longstone was the only place we could find some - a lone Michelin tarmac rally tire was the only tire in the world, essentially a DOT-R race tire. A pair, shipped, was almost $1300! They have a few choices now, still over a grand per pair.

David,

I tried the link I supplied, didn't appear to work.  If not, open the Longstone site and search: 520x12 B.F.G Whitewall.  Good luck,

Scott

According to Classic, it's a '61. Will look at the tires again when I get to the office. Thanks, everyone!
