The linked photo below shows a much-thicker white middle stripe (or thinner red stripes):

Yeah its "robbing Peter to pay Paul." We need to take from the inside of the reds and give it over to the central white.
Any chance of finding a 1964 photo to see if it was the same? Same helmet design - supposedly.
It looks as though the reds are as thick as the outer whites, am I right?

Hmmm. What do what to do?
I'm going to refer this one back to Tim.
Seems weird that they should differ.

Found these 2 photos that seem to match with the '64 preseason photo.
1965 Oilers Helmet 1965_110
1965 Oilers Helmet 1965_111
Starting to think the first photo you posted may have had some exaggerated affect to it.
I still think the stripes need changed but not to the degree that they appear in that first photo.
Something like this...
1965 Oilers Helmet 1964-610
