MILK 1027,

I tried to find the right profile of tire for my 1970 Z28 and ended up with the original Polyglass F -60 15 repop tires. It is very hard to get a modern tire to fill the wheel well as good as an original. I went through the BF Goodrich catalog and the Goodyear, etc... I will see if I still have my research from what company was the closest to stock size if that is what you are going after. I hope this helped. Jeff
