The stock tire for 1963 was a bias ply 8.00 x 14 inch with a 1 inch whitewall.

This is approximately equivalent to a P215/75R14 in modern tire size. You can get the original tire from Coker or Universal.

8.00 x 14 with 2" whitewall ( 1961 only)
or
8.00 x 14 with 1" whitewall ( 1961-1963)

From the VTCI concours factory specifications.
