Default 1953 Schwinn Corvette progress

Well been working on this a couple days, a 53' schwinn acording to the serial # and the guy i bought it from... has a bendix 2 speed hub, and S6 rims. mostly done with fabrication and getting ready to tear it down for paint, same red as the tank, and ordering the proper schwinn decal set today......anybody know of a source for tires larger than 1 3/8" for these rims? i want a slightly larger tire w/o lacing new rims on here...anybody here ever built one of these schwinn middle or lightweight bikes with the bendix hub? bolting the sprocket direct to hub with a rubber to help dampen torsional vibration to the hub....thanks for any help, David
