I need 5 new tyres for my 1932 20/25. I was suggested a set of Michelin 500/600-19 by Antique Tyre Supplies at a price of $679 each, but I would prefer something a bit more economical. From the USA are tyres available such as Universal or Excelsior for less then $200. Does anyone have suggestions where to shop in (Western) Australia?

If you want the Michelin tyres you were quoted, they are available here:
for less than $200 US each. There also is a 650/19 by Firestone, which is a very good tire for a little over $100 US for black. I have been running this Firestone tyre on my Silver Wraith (600/650-17 size) and find it very good. Very round, needs little weight to balance, and long wearing (14K miles and still half or more tread left). White also available for more $. Maybe 650 is too big for you. Also a 550-16 Goodrich for similar price in white and black, but I do not know anyone with experience with this tyre.
Of course shipping would be significant, and delivery will be slow unless you choose air freight, but $679 Au is too much to pay for tyres in my opinion.
