There is a BF Goodrich dealer near me, I'm going to see if he can possibly order the ones Coker sells in for me.

If he can get them they will be coming from Coker Tire.
Coker actually makes those tires or has them made and -I am not sure exactly how it works but - I think they license the BF Goodrich name in some manner or fashion to use on the molds when the original molds are made.  I think there is some legal reason for this, again I don't know how it works but I do know that they are not simply a high priced source for BF Goodrich tires.  Coker supplies low volumes of a wide range of Vintage reproduction tires and pretty much all of them say BF Goodrich on them.

Now that I have posted this I will ask a friend who knows how this all works and see what he says.
He actually made the molds for the 440-12 whitewall tires that Coker sells.  They used to only have the blackwall available.
regardless, you won't be finding those any cheaper unless you bought them in great volumes.
