I have the Coker BFG Silvertown 225/75R15s on my '56 Deluxe. I have been happy with them so far. No problems around town or on the highway.

I'm happy with the result.

Re: High beam indicator

The tube is held in place by three tabs on the back cover.

The red color for the indicator is created by material attached to the back of the speedometer face.

The white material in the middle of the tube is very thin and reminiscent of a latex balloon. It is as if it were painted onto the inside of the tube. It looks more like it was broken than failed from heat. I picked up this speedometer for parts and it looks like it was previously apart as the odometer has been reset.

I do not remember what my speedometer looked like back of the high beam indicator when I sent it out to be rebuilt.

Yes, there is a little cardboard tube. It is 13/16" OD and 7/8" long. It has an opaque film in the middle of the tube which is broken in the photo. The picture is from a '56 Clipper speedometer.

I had my 56 Clipper speedometer rebuilt by John Wolf & Co. in Ohio, http://antiqueinstrument.com/
and they had a replacement for mine which had broken when the speedometer failed.

At the time I was looking for 5/8, which is much more reasonably priced.

Here is a better priced option:
