Default 16" tires

I am looking for options on 16" tires, I am not interested in different rim sizes, not the look for this car. I liked the Federal SS595 in 245/50R16 but cannot find them anywhere and wouldn't mind maybe a little bigger in the back. I like the specialty look of the SS595, does not look like a passenger tire. I am looking at BFG now.
Street driven dry and wet, No winter but will store below freezing.

Any suggestions on 245 or larger 16's?

crickets here but I did find something to work.
General GMax RS in 245/50R16. wanted something a little
bigger in back but couldn't find anything that also offered 245 for the front.
So a little smaller than I wanted in back to avoid having to go smaller in the front, which I did not want.

Even certain sizes of 18's are getting harder to find. Apparently everyone wants the larger diameter (19"+) setup.

I noticed that also when looking for 18's for another car.
Anything over 18 looks bad on an old car.
