You might want to state which ones you need. Is it the standard 2n 19" rim or some guys have the 16" rims. Either way still will be hard to get. You can alway load the tires.

Don't mean to steal the thread.

I have a set of 5.50X16 on my 2N. Any suggestions to how much washer fluid to use (thinking orange stuff as says good to lower temp) if I were to add it? Would you reair them as you would rear tires?

I used Washer fluid to load my rear tires. Made a huge difference. The 12.4-28's took 20 gallons each at 8.2lbs/gal. I don't think the fronts would take more than 4-5 gallons but haven't tried to do mine yet. Still, that'd give you 30-40 lbs per tire.

Found a chart at Messick's. 5.50-16 tires take 5 gallons. About 42 pounds per tire if filled with washer fluid.

I can't really tell you how much to load them because I have front wheel weights on several of my tractors. I seem to remember the operating manual had something about loading tires so maybe check there.
