Tire vendor suggestions????

I would like to use 225-60/15 front and 275-60/15 rear on my 68. I have conducted some searches and have only found BFG radial TA in this combination and every store I check they are on backorder. I have not found any other vendor that makes both for a match set. Anyone know of a company that would offer this set up?
Thanks,

How 'bout Summit ?

With a stock suspension, think you might be borderline on size/fit ??

I got 215/65, 255/60 from Summit last fall (Sept).

Thanks, I have the 275 on the rear now and just took skinnies off the front. Which ever tire I decide for the front, I want to be able to match up with for the rear later on. I have just rebuilt stock suspension, added new stock springs and 2" drop spindles. I have 15x8 front and 15x10 rear wheels. I have checed the two suggested sights but may call and see what they say about time for special order.
Thanks again,

Re: Tire vendor suggestions????

Whoever is in charge of production planning for Michelin on the Radial T/A line needs to be FIRED!! They have been behind on production for the last two years.
I DO have both sizes your looking for on the shelf right now. I don't think 275 will be an issue...but 225,245,255/60 are going to be for a while.
The 235/60 was out for almost 1.5 years just got back in stock this week.
Please call me if I can help you.
