15" Street Tires

Hi Guys,
Just got my new BS Street Lites for my '69 Camaro. I'm now looking for some decent street tires and I really like the tread and appearance on the MT S/R street radials but they are so expensive!! Since the wheels are 15", stuff like the Nitto 555's and BFG KDW's aren't made in 15" sizes. Anyone know decent radial alternatives in 15"? Thanks.

Thanks, guys! I really was looking for tires with an interesting tread pattern. I'm thinking in 15" there aren't any.

Re: 15" Street Tires

Nitto 555R are made in 15's
I have a pair of 275/60/15's on a spare pair of 15x8 Ralleys, don't run them much on the street because they are very soft and wear fast.

I also like the Mickey Thompson Indy Profile S/S's Kinda old school.

Tony:
67 RS Clone, 388 SBC/Keisler TKO 600/12 bolt, 3.90 gear w/posi and a 250 shot of N2O for fun. See my progress at: password is camaro

Re: 15" Street Tires

I have P235/60R15's on my 1969. They are Goodyear Eagle GT II....They fit nicely and I have them all the way around....Yea I know that Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr, etc hate Goodyear, but these guys are racing in NASCAR which I am not....

FWIW, I like Dunlop, BFG, Toyo & the Firestone Firehawk's are good tires as are Bridgestone's.....BFG's also wear very well too...

Question: Has the quality on ALL Goodyear tires (drag race, street race, oval track & even Grandma's daily driver )diminished over the past 12-24 months??
