"Project Bantam" - Tire Mounting
It turned out the best place to obtain the Carlisle Power Trac rear tires was Walmart. They had them the following day, and there were no shipping charges.
The rims were de-rusted and the rust holes were filled in with bondo and glazing putty. The top coat was a matte finish to hide my poor bodywork skills on curved surfaces.
The tires went on easily with new inner tubes. The 4.8" width is marginal compared to the original 5.0". They really do look good though.
