Yep, look like Dunlop K70's to me. Probably 3.50 x 19".

Cool Re: Please Help ID this triumph and its tyres

As has been said already, they are Dunlop K70's or K70 copies. Sweet tires and perfect for that classic Brit bike look and decent riding tires too if you don't get too crazy.

1952 Triumph Thunderbird. Belonged to a guy named Magnus from Sweden. I'm not sure if the gas tank is stock for that model. The tires look like Dunlop K70's.

K70's. I bought some K180's (check my build link) and they are baddass, but I heard they stopped making them.
