13's.... Ffffffuuuuu

Postby Low_life » July 11th, 2012, 7:19 am

Well, bout some wheels... Tryin to locate treads. All local suppliers have NOTHING nor do tire-easy or tire rack... Looking for 165/55r13's or 175/50r13's... Anyone know of anywhere/anyone/anything that has these gay sizes?

Thanks!!

165 55 13 doesn't exist 165 65 13 does and almost any reputable tire shop has access to 175 50 13's Look for Sumitomo tires thats who will make the smaller sizes checkout http://www.discounttiredirect.com

Horsepower is like F.U.C.K. buddies.. you want as many as possible, for as cheap as possible, with very few people knowing how many you actually have.

I got 2 165/55/13's from http://www.tires-easy.ca in the spring but they were one of the last they had in stock, they fit ok but not as good as sumi's. Tires for 13's are getting next to impossible to find. Tuner shop has 175/50/13 but pricey considering 2 yrs ago i got sumi's for 70 each.http://www.tunershop.com/Tires/13_inches/!! Ebay is another option but there is some price gauging. Best of luck on your quest!

There was a Canadian Tire here in Waterloo, Ontario clearing out some 13's a little over a month ago...

I will take a peak and see if they still have any 13's kicken around

do 15x8. they look perfect on a mk1. plus tires are cheaper and easier to find.
