Firestone Indy Tires Early 60's Vintage

I am looking for a source to purchase new "repro" Firestone Indy Tires. The style I am looking for is from the late 50's to early 60's Indy cars and road racing cars. I have not had any luck as of yet and the closest tire I can find is the Dunlop Racing Tire from the AC Cobra era. The size range that will work is 5.50 to 6.50 x 15".
Any suggestions?

The best source for new "vintage" tires is Coker Tire Co. in Chattanooga TN. They may already make the tires you need.

Brings back memories. My best friend thru high school (mid 60's) had a '40 Ford pickup w/ hot 289, stock tranny and banjo rear end and he ran those super wide Indy tires with the rice seed tread holes. He spent most weekends replacing twisted off stock '40 Ford axles. The week ends he wasn't doing that, he was replacing stripped gears in the stock '40 Ford 3-speed tranny. Sure was great when he lit up those big hides though. He got a several month suspension of his driver's license for too many exhibition of speed citations.
