For what it's worth...inasmuch as we do not race our Jensen Healeys, we just go to the Firestone store and they get a set of 13 inch tires the next day. They dry rot before we can wear them out anyway.....same on my Jensen Interceptor...I replaced the last set that looked just like new, but the sidewalls after eight years were beginning to show signs of aging...so we bought regular everyday tires and have no problems...

I can understand going to 15 inch wheels and tires, but do not understand why any would buy the top of the line tires when they age out before they wear out...that is unless you drive the car every day...and that is a horse (or car) of another color..
