what's the equivalent of 775-14 in modern tire sizes?

The original tires of the Hemi Satellite in my dreams are almost to the cords. What radials will fit the factory steel wheels and keep things as close to original as possible?

Pick up an "Old Cars Weekly" paper. There are tire manufacturers that advertise in there that sell the right tires for old cars. The ride height will never be right with off the shelf radials. If you desire a stock looking car you will never be happier.
