Default Raised White Letter Tires

I can't seem to find tire companys that make these anymore. I thought Goodyear still made Performance GT' Radials but I can't find a link. Can anyone help? I always loved the look of those tires. Thanks in advance!

Goodyear, maybe firestone or bridgestone might make some. Check tirerack.com or americastire.com. they may have what you are looking for.

Ok, I found the tires I like, BF Goodrich T/A Radials with nice raised white letters. However, they are no longer for sale in the U.S. [xx(] Can anyone explain why? I had these on my Firebird many years ago and they were fine. I saw a guy with trhem on a PT and they looked great. Even if I can't get these, I can't even find another brand that's comparable. *Frustration factor kicking in*

[|)]I don't know if you went to www.cokertire.com [:I] but they have BF Goodrich T/A radials, with raised white letters, listed for $66.00-$85.00 each, depending on size, listed on their website.

Here's a BF Goodrich, if this doesn't help its time to give size, solid raised, outlined raised and so on. This could go on if not.

Thanks everyone for all your help. It looks like the tire profile needed for the PT is too small for raised white letters, at least from BF Goodrich. If I go with a fatter tire, I'll need to recalibrate the speedo, and I'm not ready to do that yet. I'll keep searching.
