Wanted: NOS or Good Used Sears Allstate Guardsman 7.60 X15 WW Tire

As the subject says, does anyone have a NOS or good used Sears Allstate Guardsman 7.60 X 15 WW tire for non-road use? Those on my 1956 Clipper Custom Sedan have less than 100 miles on them but one sat flat for too long in storage and no longer holds air. I know I can find something similar in a new brand but I really prefer matching tires on my cars and canít afford a set for a car that does not currently even run. I did locate a NOS one in Texas a while back but it was on a pick-it-up-yourself site and the guy refused to ship.

Why not just put in a tube?

The sidewalls no longer exist.

Edit: sorry for the terse answer but I was a passenger on a bumpy and winding mountain highway making writing difficult. Anyway, there isnít enough left of the sidewall to give any support for a tube as it has split from sitting flat and sunk in the ground for so long. Replacing the tire is the only way and I prefer the same kind as it already has.

I see that the NOS tire in Houston, TX is still available but the problem is that the seller wonít ship. Is there a Houston area member willing to make the transaction for me, then send to my Oregon shop? Tires just require being wrapped in paper or Saran warp, then a label affixed (usually on a string- or wire-tag) so quite easy. If so, please PM me to discuss.

I found an excellent slightly used full set and purchased so no longer need one. Thank you to those who responded.

Yesterday I picked up the freshly mounted Allstate Guardsman tires on my 1956 Clipper Custom's powder coated wheels and they look great. The red is not an exact match to my car's Tangier Red but with wheel covers installed only the edge will show so close enough!

Unfortunately none of the tires that were on the car before were even good enough as a spare so I still could use one more 7.60 X 15! Also, the car sat so long in the soft dirt that three of the wheels had to be replaced (especially as one didn't match the others) but I managed to get them shipped to my shop the last time I was here and get them to the tire shop for straightening, blasting, powder coating and mounting. Now to get the brakes fixed and the car running.

Also, I got a nice set of Allstate Guardsman 8.20 X 15 mounted on Packard wire wheels. Two of the tires look like new and the other two are excellent while the fifth, also on a Packard wire wheel that is spray painted silver, is a modern narrow whitewall. Is there a way to tell externally if these wire wheels are originals or reproductions?

None of the tires are yellowed as they look in the photos.
