Default Tires for 1963 Ford Falcon?

I just bought a 1963 Ford Falcon 2 door hardtop (six cylinder) and it needs tires. I plan on using 14" 1965 Mustang wheels. It's just going to be a cruiser, so I'm not too worried about performance. BFG Radial T/As would be fine, but I thought the thin whitewall tires would look cool. I have some on the rear now and I like the look. I'm not sure about the RWL look for this car.

Where do I find the thin whitewall tires? What brand should I look for?

Thanks

I like the idea of getting some white wall tires for it. I agree the thin ones look cool. I'm not so much into the BFG TAs on it at all.

If I remember right when I was at Discount Tire getting my Yokohamas for the Mustang, a guy was in there looking for the same thing, and I think they have something like that.

I'm going to buy the tires locally so I can avoid shipping charges. The nearest Discount Tire store is 75 miles away. Another local tire place is a rip off. A new tire place just opened up close by and I will take a drive today to see what they have.

Here are a few pictures. I like the look of the thin whitewalls and black steel wheels.

You stink, Nick. I really like the Cragars on my car, but how often am I going to come across them in a four lug version? They do exist in four lug:

Crager SS 4 lug W/ Firehawk SS tires For Sale

I'd rather not spend the money on the Falcon for a five lug conversion. I want to do that on my Mustang.
