[xk] 6.00/6.50-16 tire size

I have just noticed an unusual size designation on an old
bias ply 16’’ tire, which has been a spare tire for my 140.

The tire is marked; BF Goodrich Commander 220 Nylon 4
Ply Rating 6.00/6.50-16.

Sort of an odd size designation. Also there is no
recommended pressure rating anywhere on the tire.–

Browsing for tire supliers I came across LongStone Tyres UK
http://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/index.php who sells 600x16 or 6.00/6.50x15
or 6.00/6.50x17 but definitly not the size you noticed.
May be 6.00/6.50x16 is no longer manufactured…
