Vintage 'Skinny' 700-16 Tires

Ran across a picture taken last year when I started reworking my trailer. If you notice in the right hand corner of the picture you will see the tires that came on it. I pitched the tires due to dry rot but kept the wheels and plan to buy some tires for it so I can get those classic moon hub caps back on there.
I have the Master Tracks ST 225/75 R15 on there right now and I don't care for the white wagon wheel look. It just cheapens the Airstream in my opinion.
I have looked at Cokers website for the 700-16 but I am going to shop around to get a good price. If you have any suggestions on companies to go with i would appreciate the input.
Thanks!

Can you remember what you paid for 'em? I have found them for around $115 so far.

What brand tire are they and how are they holding up. I have heard varying reports on running with tubes opposed to tubeless. I guess the downside is that there can be leakage and if you are out in nowhere you're kinda screwed. Any thoughts?

Don`t remember name,put them on ,hauled from Naples to my shop in Ohio,and it has sat there for 2 years,plan on restoring when I can spend summers up there.
I only ran tubes because of the split rims,all my other trailers are tubeless.
