Check with chief joseph on this forum or email him on his sight fireball modelworks he has a 295/60/15 bit might have ideas on other sizes. His work is great. And the tires are b/f goodrich radial t/a's.

He also has these tires in soft resin or hard white resin. I ordered several sets of tires of both and they are great quality and the prices are good. He's a great guy hope this helps.

He also offers a 235/60/15 and while that is smaller than what you are looking for, it may look just right on the car.

 

His service and product is right up there with the best of them, don't hesitate to order, you will be happy!

I have been checking the site out..and will probably order a few sets of the bigger tires...wont go on the camaro build, but im sure i can find a place for them. As far as the 235/60/15 goes, it will be too small..I have 275/60/15 on my car, and trying to replicate it...so i guess i will have to just use a drag slick or something that is close. thanks

haha that would work wouldn't  it lmao. I want it to look more like a street car lol...295s are just abit wide (but I did take them in consideration when buying tires)...I found a set of slicks that are the same dimensions as the 275/60s so will probably just use them, also fond front tires the same dimensions as my 1:1

 

off topic, but would love to see a pic of the car if ya got one lol

Tim, if you can get ahold of a set of these, the larger of the two pairs within measure close to the 275s you seek:

Or the older AMT Baldwin Motion Camaro has M/Ts also that are just a bit narrower:

Why don't buy the tires from Joseph and narrow them down to fit.
