'69 needs tires...suggestions?

I'm a new owner of a 69 International Overlander 27' and it needs tires. Should I be concerned with the style, due to it's age, or just the correct type, size, ratings, etc. ? It is bigger than I was planning and may have to sell it and look for a smaller one.(depends on neighbors). So, I want to get this right. Thanks a bunch gang.

When it comes to style, I am reminded of a saying we have at work: Safety Third!

But seriously, you want a tire rated for your rig. There are large and vocal schools of thought here on the forum regarding tires, but all have safety top of mind: some say only get a trailer tire (number begins with "ST") others recommend Michelin light truck tires (number begins with 'LT")

The main thing is putting on some rubber that isn't going to disintegrate on you, or blow up, and will track with your TV.

Then there is the whole maintenance issues of tire pressure, not letting them sit too long, covering them to protect against UV, etc. -- it's a whole big issue here, just search to see what I mean.

The bottom line; most will recommend either the new Good Year Endurance trailer tire or some Michelin truck tire.
