Anyone make a 70 series drag radial?

I'm still mulling over tires for my car, 15x7" wheels.

Does anyone make a 70 series drag radial, say a 235/70/R15? I'm looking for a taller tire to help fill out the wheelwell. I'd use those on the rear and go with a BFG on the front.

I was hoping to get radial redlines from Diamondback Classics, but by the time I get 5 tires ( need a spare for the trunk ) and add s/h I'm looking at over $1100 US. Add duties & exchange and it's now up to around $1500. I'll be paranoid about getting a flat, or doing a burnout!

I have put 275/60-15's on a 7" rim and got away with it ok. It's the same height as a 235/70-15 just a tad wider.

Thanks Dave. I've never been keen on the 275 on a 15x7, bulges a little too much at the sidewall for my tatse.
