60" x 30" shower pan that can be tiled

I am wanting to remove a 30" x 60" bathtub and convert to a shower. I'm hoping to find an exact size shower base (left hand) that the drain will line up with the bathtub drain. I'm thinking this is "somewhat" of a standard but I know for every rule there are exceptions. I also want to be able to tile this floor & want to be sure that the new base will allow this. When shopping for bases I never see "ok to tile over" which would be good to know. Is this something I can get at Home Depot or Lowes or do I need to go somewhere else?
Thanks in advance!

If you find what you want... also buy a few Power Ball tickets. Finding a shower pan to align with a previous tub's drain is a difficult ask. I would just plan on opening up the floor to move the drain wherever it needs to go. Also tub drains are often 1 1/2" while showers require 2" so you'll probably have to install a new drain line anyhow.

look at KBRS.com. they offer bases that you can custom order or cut to size. I found one that was 30x61 with the drain on one end. You can trim it up to 3" I think in any direction.

Also try Tile Redi web site. I think it might be tough to find a base that will match your drain, but once the tub is out moving the drain is a piece of cake.
