  • recommend a good tire size for me

    Hey i am getting ready to buy tires, and i want to stick with a 13 in rim, i was looking at the 175/50/13, but i cant find them any more. so i was wondering what your thoughts are?

    i was hoping for any thing in between 165-185 and not having to modify much.



    Thanks Fellas

    Since you were looking at 175/50-13, I assume you want something short.

    165/65-13 is quite close to the stock diameter and should fit with no problems.

    175/60-13 (if you can find them) is a touch shorter and a bit wider.

              Its too bad you dont still have 12's, cause Canadian Tire still has them for 31.46 a tire! I just bought a set! Where else can you get a set of 4 tires for $125 ???? I love my car!

                I've been real happy with my Sumitomo 185/60/13's like Leapin said. Just Google 'em and you'll find some. They look great on my Festy.
