I need tires for my '65 356C coupe. I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I would be able to purchase the vintage tires (i believe they are still made) or what modern tires will fit

I replaced the original steel (ugly) wheels with the 15x6 Fuchs rims that were available on the 911s up through the late 70's. Mine happen to be the two-tone black/polished aluminium rims, and it goes well with the yellow exterior of the car. They fit fine, provide better traction, and it still keeps a look of Porsche heritage to the overall appearence. Tires we have on it are Yokohama AVS Intermediates, as I do some Autocrossing in the car. - If you look hard enough, you can still find places to get NOS tires, a price premium might come into effect as we continue through time though.

for vintage, try Coker.com

you can also check your local Michelin dealer for XZX tires in a 165R-15; I got some brand new ones 18 months ago for my 914 for $291 for 4 including mt and balance.

You can also go with tirerack.com; they have modern tires that might fit in a 195/65-15, but be sure of clearances before buying.

Try the 356 BBS at Pelican in addition to here. This board is great for my BMW, they're far better for Porsche.
