  2. Used to see them on some 'high-end' '50s builds and custom rods... but they weren't common.

    ^^^^
    The '60s era Ford restorers could buy 6.00-16 Ford script repops, but I forgot who made them - maybe Lucas.
    The cars in the '50s - '60s magazine pictures with whitewalls on both sides were either motorcycle tires, or single whitewall with a Port-a-wall inside. When whitewalls were finally available after the war, no tire makers made a dual white until the '60s antique suppliers brought them back in a few sizes.

    Not that i know of but they do have a new line of tire , Auburns, that are bias ply look a likes. They custom make their tires so they probably would do two sided Auburns if someone wanted them.

    ^^^ The really cool thing is that their tires are actually ROUND.
