Low profile 16.5" dually tires?

Any recommendations on some low profile dually tires for 16.5" rims? Looking for a good street tire, not M&S. Trying to get the final ride height set on my 53 Ford project, and I want something shorter than the 8.5 x 16.5's that are on it now.

Front will be 3.5" lower than in the picture with the spindles and coils that are going in next week.



Thanks

My only piece of advice is to try and get some 16 or 17" wheels.

I just went through getting some 9.5r16.5's for the 73 GMC tow rig, and I had a hard time finding anything. In fact, I cant even find 8.5r16.5's right now through a search.

Actually I guess they are 8.75's Just took a look and I see what you mean about the 16.5" tire choices. Guess I'll start looking around for some different wheels before spending a bunch of $$ on tires
