Have read the posts regarding tire choices for 205/60 - 13's . It appears that the consensus is the Sumitomo HTR 200's....unfortunately they are NLA...called all the usual places, Tirerack, Vulcan, Online Tires etc. No Luck!!!

Anyone have experience with "Nankang XR611 Toursport" , "Federal Formoza FD1", "Cooper Cobra GT" or the $$$ Vredestein Sprint Classic? .....or any other tire available in 205/60-13.

Please advise.....

Thanks in advance.

Rob

Just bought a set of Sumitomo HTR 200 205/60/13's


found a set of TOYO R888 205 60 13 on ebay as well. Use 205 60 13 as search term.

John,

Did you get the Sumitomo's from discount tires 2go ? If so you recieved the last ones...I had not recieved a shipping confirmation so I called about my order and was notified that they are NLA.

So still looking for tire suggestions?

Thanks...Rob

Rob,
I did not get mine either.
When I tried to call I was put on hold for an hour.
They did not even email or call me to tell me I was not going to receive them.
I did find some 185/70/13 in a T rating.
I will keep looking.
I will inform you if I find them.
Regards, John

I know this doesn't offer any help but this is the reason I went with 15" rims and tires last year when I bought some for my car. I didn't want to be in the postion of not being able to find tires anymore.

That and the fact that the 15" rims look so much better on the car. Especially after having both on the car.

Found these tires...

http://www.performanceplustire.com/products/tires/searchType/searchBySize/tireSize/205_SLASH_60-13

Maybe one of these would work well for us. I apparently didn't get the Sumitomo tires I ordered either.

Will a 215/50/r13 tire fit the stock wheels and fit the Jensen  Healey without any interference?

It will fit the wheels (R13 always fits on 13" wheels), and It shouldn't rub anywhere.

BUT: I don't think you want to go to that dimension. You increase the RPMs by close to 8% compared to (what I believe is) stock 185/70 for any given speed. Since the gearing isn't exactly tall to begin with, it could be really annoying really quickly. According to European rules, it wouldn't be street legal either, max deviation in circumference is +-5%.

Have a look at http://dekkalkulator.com/ to play with different tyre dimensions.

After much deliberation I decided to go with Federal 595..... 205/60 13's

http://www.federaltyres.com.au/tyres/high-performance/595

I purchased them from  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370364671519 (the usual disclaimers apply)


These tires are the required standard for the "Legend" racing series http://www.uslegendcars.com/racing_series/

I recieved the tires within a week and will post my two cents worth after they are mounted and I have had time to drive them a bit.

Thanks for everyones input....Rob

I just  talked to online tire at 5:30 est and they told me
they have no idea when they will get any 13" tires .
They have a couple 175/70/13 but nothing else.
 I will keep trying and see if I can find some .
I will keep you informed.
Regards, John

I have decided to go with the stock 185/70's basiclly for the speed rating and I haven't had stock tires on the car since 1986

but for those interested RG & John
tireeasy.com

http://ssl.delti.com/cgi-bin/rshop.pl?dsco=135&cart_id=19388033.135.19194&s_p=Tires

has at least more than 8 205/60T-13's in stock for delivery according to a rep on the phone that sounded a bit like an off shore call center
they are T rated and raised white letter but they are 205/60's!!
