Default Advice on Vintage Looking Tires Needed.

I recently bought a couple 70’s model Thunderbirds. I’d like to find some vintage appearing tires for them. They have 2.50-10’s on right now. Anybody know of any new tires that have a vintage look? Not looking for dirt bike tire tread. Thanks.

Can you describe "vintage look"?

The ones on my Bird Nighthawk were Fox Corporation and they looked pretty dang old/vintage, not sure if you would be able to find those. They were dry rotted, I replaced them with Michelin Starcross.

My Bird Thunderbird came with Cheng Shin brand tires.
