Hi, you'll need to forget them radials & go for crossply/bias belted, i think you can get 4" wide whites still & man do they look cool. I've not had a 50's cruiser for about 10 yrs now but the first thing i ever did was wide whites, & despite general opinion i think they not only look better but drive better too! i have used Coker & firestone in the past & if memory serves me right the size was L78/15.
Try a search on the net for vintage tires or just wide whitewall tires, dont accept the first option someone tries to sell you stick with your search & that car will look real Kooool.
