Try tire rack dot com they will ship to you if your local guy does not have them. Some of the local tire shops do not care for odd sizes of tires as they are more for the grocery getter kinds of people..

Thanks Sam. That size has been discontinued which is why I'm having such a hard time finding them. I have one set now, (Goodyear GT II), but want a back up set. Thanks

I went through the same thing, unfortunately 16 inch tires are going by the way side, at least for muscle car sizes ...17 and 18 inch are now the common place.
For sure I would suggest looking for old stock, but you already knew that

Good Luck

Pictured Impala has 16x9 rear wheels and I couldn't believe when I went to replace tires last time what little was out there. Didn't '80s Corvettes have those, stock? Discount tire got us 255/50s but I'm a little worried we'll even be able to get that, next time.
