215/70s will be just as wide as 215 /60s, but substantially taller. I'd be more inclined to use 225/60s, if you can find them.
215 or 225 is the width of the "body" of the tire, in millimeters. 60 or 70 is the percentage of the height of that section, vs the width.
For example a 225/50-15 will be 225 mm wide, and the bottom of the wheel rim will be ~112.5 mm off the ground. (Nothing is exact, but that's a good ballpark explanation.)
To find equivalent tire sizes, go here...
http://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp

If you plug your "old" and "new" tire sizes into the chart, it will tell you how they compare in all directions, as well as the resulting speedometer error.

Tire Rack still sells the BFGoodrich in that size:

However, I always use TireBuyer in the past with great success. They ship the tires to your local installer for you to have mounted on your car. Search by tire size, input your zip code at the bottom, and they will ship to any of your closest tire shops for free.

I'm currently running 215/70/14 on the rear, they are Toyo Extensa A/S, they go for $78 each on tread depot's website. They ship by way of UPS. They have excellent grip dry or wet and fill the wheel well nicely. I have no problem blasting around hairpin turns with them, and that's with the stock suspension on my 87 Notchie. I would run these tires instead of the BFG's any day. Also, I run 195/70/14 General Tires RT's up front that I got on Tire Rack, but I got those on closeout so at this time they are gone. However the General Tire RT 43 are available for $63.21 each now, and I believe they are even better than the regular RT's. The 195's up front definetly make turning at low speed, parking, and such easier. The previous owners 215's up front weren't bad though. ----That's just my 2 cents.
