Coker will probably have something. I put Shinko 240 Classic 5.10 x 16 black walls on my '68 FLH. This model came from the factory with white walls, but while I'm building this to be as correct as I can, I intend for it to be a rider, and white walls don't stay white very long - especially the rear tire. The Shinko tire I have is also available in white wall. Some here may not care for Shinko tires, but I've never had any trouble with them. They ride well and are inexpensive compared to Coker or Avon.

Here's a link to their white wall:

You're welcome. It's just copy and paste. Just as easy to link to the specific product as it is to the home page.
