1956 Pontiac Star Chief Catalina Coupe Tires

Hi I am from the Philippines and new to the group.

Been restoring my Dad's 1956 Pontiac Star Chief 2 door Catalina for sometime now. Been surfing the net for 7.1-15 bias ply white side tires. Found several stores offering these tires. Each one claiming they have their own molds and manufacture the tire themselves......Firestone, US Royal, Coker Classics, Universal. Anyone who has 1st hand experience with these tire brands?

Thought of getting the original brand they used on the Pontiac Star Chief's during the 50s. Any idea what brand they use during those times?

Hope you guys can help me decide which one to buy. It is really hard to buy by just looking at the pictures.

I believe your Pontiac was originally equipped with U. S. Royal tires. I know Coker owns many original molds so their tires look exactly like the originals but are constructed with better modern materials.
