Radial 3.5 inch whitewalls- do they exist?

OK, I know I made a post a week or so ago regarding getting 6.70-15s in radials.

The conversion chart link offered up ( as well as the one on Coker tire.com ) did offer much help.

I know 6.70-15 converts to a 205/75R-15 radial.

Trouble is, the only ones I can find on Coker don't come in the same whitewall size as I have now ( approx 3.5 inch wide.) In fact the closest is almost a full 1 inch shorter!

Am I barking up the wrong tree looking for radials with that wide a whitewall? I've done some internet and mag research, and all I see is Coker tire ( covering Coker, BF Goodrich and Firestone. ) Is there anyone else who makes wide whitewall radials?

go to your local tire store, most can get BIG white walls.. I know in the st louis,mo area Auto Tire can get some BIGG white walls(around 4inch) cause my brother was going to get them. BUT the price of the tire doubled because of it. another thing is ask for the same make tire you have now if its a radial if not you may have to get just a tad bigger or shorter ones...joe
