To be honest even if your original wheels were rust free it would make a lot of sense to move to 451mm as you then have more choice for tyres and possibly tubes (probably 451 tubes work in 440 tyres but its better to match the size exactly). You can get many new modern tyres in the 451mm size but I imagine 440mm tyres will be quite basic and possibly old stock.
