Tires needed for Monocoupe restoration

The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is looking for tires for the restoration of their Monocoupe 113.  Tom Polapink posted the following on the Monocoupe Aircraft Group (on Facebook):

BF Goodrich Silvertown 6.50 x 10 tire for Monocoupe 113 project. We are looking for more of these tires and wheels to match for the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome’s restoration project.

Brian Coughlin found one 6.50 x 10 tire in his collection that he is going to donate to the Aerodrome for our Monocoupe 113 restoration…Does anyone out there have a matching tire and wheels for our project?
