Locating radial tires for a stock 64 convert rim

Did some looking around to see where i could find some new 265 75r 15  radial tires for the 64 convert The current radial I have on the car I was  very surprised to see the size has become a problem to locate with a close to stock looking skinny WW Any thoughts  or leads on the subject would be appreciated It appears only 235 75r 15 tires are available but do not know what that size change would mean to the ride if they are usable on our cars Enjoy See More

"The most likely cause is a bad regulator ground.  The upper contacts in the regulator are the ones which control the voltage.  The way this is achieved is by connecting a magnetic coil in parallel with the field winding circuit, which…"
