Have you tried Concours Parts. They show them in their catalog.

You can also check with Pat Wilson. He's in Fredon, NJ. He doesn't have them listed but he may be able to get them.

Don't hold your breath waiting for Coker. They told me over a year ago that they were on backorder and that they would call me when available. Need a set for my 64

This seller says....
"Our wheels are generally kept in stock"

This one guarantees in stock but looks like they want a premium for having them.

Don't forget the tubes!!

BTW...
I just bought a set of Coker Classic Wide Whitewall tires.
Look great but not very impressed with the handling compared to my last set of Diamond Back Wide whitewall radials.
Guess I'll play around with the tires pressures and see how close I can come to what I had. Have the Cokers set at the same PSI I was running in the DB - same size tires and no other changes.
And for a street tread they are fairly noisy. My DB's were an all season tread and were quieter than the Cokers.

You can always trim the skirts for larger radials.
