Be creful with 530 x 12. Put those on my 48. Okay in the rear. Rubbed the fender on the front when turning.

Just picked up my car today and took a look and what a strange thing I found they are all marked ARCO 530/450-12 tires. Interesting they have two sizes marked on em. I did some research online and indeed the 480/12 are 20.5 inch and the 530/12 are 21.5. Since Jim said his original spare 450 measure 21.5 and I see no issues with rubbing with the 21.5 ARCO 530/450s on mine I am going to go with the new 530-12s too. I think the last thing a Crosley needs is a shorter tire to drop maximum speed even more.
