They look like 21" de-mountable's so probably 450x525's or 450x575's JMHO

The black rims can give the illusion of the tires being larger. That may be what we are seeing.

My guess 4.50 x 5.75 too, same on this Depot hack with the white Model A 21" wire wheels, some Model A owners like the larger tires.

They are good for a Depot hack for the extra capacity.

Lot a bit silly on a runabout IMO.

Ok I know everyone is "tire" of hearing that everything is bigger in Texas....

Well, Unfortunately we broke a few records for "biggest rain" lately. :-(

I don't think they look silly. I have big sexy balloon tires on my speedster. They make it ride nice and help hug the road on corners.

Such tyres would be a must if the the Texan owner is a 300+ Ib "Big Boy" with an even bigger wife.
