I believe the Goodyear Blue Streak 6.95 X 14 is only available from Kelsey Tires.  Shelby Parts and Restoration might be able to get you a better price.  The Kelsey website is showing $405 per tire.

Make sure you select the black wall version.  The blue stripe sidewall is for the Chrysler products, 65 67 Barracuda Formula S.  Early on, many hobbyist believed the blue stripe version was also for the 66 GT350.  There were enough restored show cars with these blue stripe tires that perpetuated the belief.   We have since learned these were not the OEM tire.

Best of luck

Thanks so much to everyone for the valuable info! Im hoping that its not too horrible to run my BFGs and representing the trunk with a nice original magnum 500 with a blue streak on it ?? Any opinions are also helpful as Im trying to get my Hertz to the higher level but still wanting to drive it occasionally to shows etc! Thanks
