No More 165r15 Tires. What is next closest size?

I run 165r15 tires with 15x4 Weld wheels on the front of my 1968 Chevelle. I went to get new tires and after checking with many different tire stores and having no luck finding tires because apparently no one is making them anymore I was hoping that someone could tell me the next closest size to the 165r15 tire. Please help.

What aspect ratio?

Most tires smaller than 200 are compact car tires. You should be able to find 185/65r15

They still make them, you have to search on line tire companies.

Numerous hits on Ebay while searching 165R15. Even Pepboys shows them available online.

I have a set of 165R15's in my garage, I'll probably never use them. If you're interested let me know, I'll take some pics.
