In my opinion, if you're dead-set on having a wider rear tire, you'd be better off selling it and buying a bike that came with more modern/wider wheels and radial tires.
Why not just enjoy the bike for what it is, how it is, and just get out there and ride the wheels off of it until you can afford something newer?
