Question Radials vs bias-ply

I am restoring my original 69 SS/RS Camaro and want to make it look as original as possible. I am using 14 x 7 ralley wheels.

Does anyone make a radial that has the original bias ply or wide oval markings?

Should I buy bias-ply and sacrifice some of the ride?

Does anyone make a raised letter Uni-Royal Tiger Paw tire since this is what was on the car from the factory?

Re: Radials vs bias-ply

i took the option of diamondback tires. they take brand new radials (like my firestone firehawk indy 500's, which are great tires, btw) and shave the decoration and lettering off of the side and vulcanize an applique that makes the sides smooth with a red or white stripe, or huge whitewalls, if you were so inclined. all the benefits of modern radials with the classic look. i haven't seen any repros with original lettering.
