Any one know where I can get 195/70R13 tires? All the stores in my area claim this tire is obsolete now. I have a 1986 RS. Can I go to a 14 inch rim if I need to? Thanks.
yes you can go to a 14 inch rim with no problems.
1st 1st gen on air.....
Thanks. It would still be better if I could find a tire
Cooper makes them in that size. I had to ask for them specifically and they ordered them from their Chicago warehouse...but they are still available.
I got them in the Cobra GTS series in that size.
I know for a fact that sams club sells that size,I have looked and touched the tire in question on the racks only down fall was it was a black wall,I wanted some white letter to look cool.i do not remember the brand right off hand tho.
Update I ironically went to sams club today.They have dunlop in a 175/70/13 blk wall for 41.54,bf goodrich 185/65/14 for 53.44, goodyear allegra 185/65/14 for 61.12 , michelin symmetry 185/65/14 73.73.These were instock (on shelf) items.I did not see any 195s in the 13 inch size or 14 size.But they prolly are avail upon request.I figure most tire shops can order or get what u want.I just thought I would share this with you and all the tires I looked at were black wall tires.I just think the white letter compliments the look myself being thats what I have now which do not need to b replaced super low miles and great condition.Ok
I was able to get this size tire a few years ago for my '86. They were Starefire SX5000 P195/70/13 white letter tires.I found them at Pep Boys(I should know,I've worked there the last 13 years). Dumb thing was,after finding these tires,and restoring the original 13 steel rally wheels,I went to a 16'' custom setup a few months later! Oh well...........
