original Stallion tires?

Rick57
Hi…new to the forum.
I actually won a Stallion back in 1965.
I entered a drawing contest on the back of Post "Crispy Critters" cereal and was one of the five (national) grand prize winners.
As you could imagine, at 8 years old this was like winning the lottery!

I recently bought one off ebay from someone who got it from the original owner who also won it in same contest!…scroll down after opening link:

Does anyone know what the original tires were that came on the Stallion?
Not sure mine are original.
If not what would be close (new) replacements?

Also looking for a nice clean (working) V-RROOM engine for bike.

Thanks, Rick
