Tires 32 x 4 1/2 - 6 ply where will I find them?

I had exactly the same issue.  I found two choices:


BF Goodrich Silverton  32 x 4-1/2 which are a 65psi 6 ply tire with a 3-3/8" wide tread https://www.universaltire.com/32x4-1-2-bf-goodrich-silvertown-tire.html


Universal Ribbed Blackwall  31 x 4 which are a 60psi 4 ply tire with a 3" wide tread https://www.universaltire.com/universal-brand-tires/high-pressure-straight-sided/31-x-4-universal-ribbed-blackwall.html


I liked the Lester tread design with the ribbed micro-siping and the Universal has almost the same design so I went with that.  I like the look on my car better and I would think they are a quieter tread design. Based on my parts manual, my Studebaker Light Six would have come with 30 x 3-1/2 (2-3/4" wide tread) originally but I wanted something a little wider.

Hi Wayne, You might try Lucas Classic Tire in California. They still have some of the discontinued Lester sizes in stock, that they don't list on their website. They also offer a "Dunlop", which they make themselves.
