    Default 13 inch tyres dicontinued

    hay guys,

    does anyone know what company makes decent 13 inch tyres?
    i got a TE corty and i got some problems keeping it that stock look

    the best i can get are bridgestone re92 on a 185/65/13 size, there the widest one i can find,

    does anyone make larger width ones?

    i have 2 205/65/13 on the back of mine, a spare wheel with a 205 on it in the boot, and i got 185 width on the front .

    or maby performance tyres in a larger width?

    i know bridgestone discontinued the 205 width on the 13 inch.

    maby i shuld start looking at 15 inchers???

    Decent 13" tyre? Good luck!

    I'd look at upgrading the rims if I were you.

    I Went to bridgestone a few years ago and got some 225/50/13's i think they said that they had 13, yes unlucky 13 left...although that was about 5 years ago, and keep a lookout at the wreckers, they might be there with the hotwires (the car disapeared about a year and a half ago)

    Give them a call and see how you go, best to call all of the manufacturers and then you'll get an idea if they still have the mould....they might have sold it to someone else who is specialising in certain tyres.

    Good luck, and keep your eyes open for a good corty too, i had to get an XE cus i couldnt find a good one

    Eager are not made any longer. Which is a shame I like them. Wear out a bit quick but they are sticky.

    Shame the eagers arent around. I had a set on my corty and they were a charm, nice and sticky which was good cus it was trouble getting power down to the ground with anything that was 185 or 195....

    When i got them which was a while ago (2004) they said that they had 13 of the 205's left....and they didnt have the mould anymore....Best of luck, if you find any, drop a post here cus i wouldnt mind getting my hands on them again

    If you like the old school RWL look - 205/60R13 Mastercraft Avenger GTs out of the States, imported by Quality Tyres in Brisbane. This mob import the Coopers Tyres range so you can rock up to your nearest Coopers Tyres Dealer and order them in....











    Nice grippy tyres, good dry or wet with good directional stability and turn in

    Cheers

    Thanks Mate,
    have sent them a message asking if they have any dealings with tyre places here. Hopefully they do. Cost a fortune otherwise.
    By the way your car looks great with those tires... very cool indeed

    Try these guys a call...

    Federal Tires
    6 Spiers Street
    Northgate, QLD, 4013.

    I bought 13" tyres from them a few years back... I use to run the 595 Ultra's on both my GTR33 & turbo charged Starlet, they are a pretty good tyre for the money...

    http://www.federaltyres.com.au/passenger/formoza-fd1

    http://www.federaltyres.com.au/passenger/ss657

    They do a few other styles in 13" as well.
