Looking for a tire recommendation

Hello,
I don't know if anyone still checks out this group, but I thought it might bring people out of the woodwork. I have a 1982 Corvette that is getting
ready for new tires. The old ones are from the last batch of Eagle GT IIs that were available in this area (SE Florida, USA). It had Eagle GTs before that. The car is used for general driving and the rare track holiday. I'd like to find tires made in the USA by a recognizable company. The local dealers are selling all kinds of foreign tires that I've had no experience with. Thus far I've not seen anything I like. I was wondering if someone here might have a recommendation as to what to look for.
Thank you,
David

David; I you may want to take a look at tirerack.com. You input your car info and what you want to do with t and they make recommendations for the best tires to fit your needs. I went thru them for my C4 and got a great deal on Firestones for less than half of the goodyear prices. I have had them on the car since 2007. My wife and I both autocrossed with it in Md with the SCCA and the tires are still good. Hope this helps. Ron

Ron,
Thank you for the recommendation. They have two suggestions, one of which might do. At least they still go back beyond 1982 on their lists. Many other sites cut off at 1984 or later. We still have 1950 era cars in my area. They are beautiful. I'll keep looking. The Goodrich tires they recommend might look good on my car.
Thank you,
David
