hello ! what are good tyres to put on a W187 type 220 ?

Would prefer whitewalls and a tyre that provides light steering at parking speeds

The std 4.5 inch non safety rims have been replaced with 5.5 inch safety rims off a later model

thankyou in advance , Murray Mules

I have 6.70 X 15 bias whitewall tires from BF Goodrich. A bit taller and wider than the 6.40 X 15 tires

I get my tires from Diamondback Tires.
https://dbtires.com/

They have a wide range of tires and whitewall options.
I actually use steel-belted radials because I drive my car a lot, and wanted good road stability.
