I'm doing a speedster build and am using 1930 A wires. I've seen pics of 575/600X19 tires. Can anyone aim me in the right direction for a set? Thanks! Gary

My OP;
I am thinking that 5.75/6.00 might be fat for the 19" Model A rims. That size might ok for the 16 inch rims. The stock 19" wheel used something in the range of 4.75 to 5.00" at 5.75-6.0" that is going to give you a lot of bulge/over hang. (tire outside the rim itself plus there is the cost factor)

Most modern tires are "oversized" already, so are probably close to 575.
