    Where to get 13" tires???

    It's getting harder and harder to find 13" tires. My current Sumitomo HTR 200s(195/60r13) will soon be worn out. I have read that this model/size has long been discontinued. Where are you all getting your 13" tires and what sizes are you running?? Any help would be much appreciated!

    Running a 185/60-13 Falken ZIEX 912. I got mine from http://www.tires-easy.com.

    They have 4 different types of 185/60-13, none in a 195/60-13, and 2 types of 205/60-13. :tu:

    I bought those same 195/60-13 Sumitomos you have two years ago from http://www.tirerack.com, but they recently told me discontinued them some time last year. :|

    FWIW, they have in the past told me they don't do "low profile" or "high performance" 13" tires. :|


    Closest I've seen (on their site at least) is this "red line" BFG:

    http://www.cokertire.com/tire-styles/ra ... adial.html

    Comes in a 175/70-13 and 185/70-13.

    As awesome as 13's are, this why why I went 15's. Tire selection is for shit, especially if you looking for wide, low, and sticky. I think the 205/60 is about the best you're gonna get unless you wanna run r-comps, I even had to resort to that with a 15.

    What about retreading them like truck tires do? Is it possible?

    I know how you feel. I have 155/60/13 on the front of the publica. Nankang's site shows they carry them, but no one in the US does. Every tire shop/site I've called or emailed say they're discontinued.
