Default Need help finding tires

Anyone know where i can find a set of street tires for 13" dia rim by 8" wide. I am using old school baby supra rims on my rotary powered starlet. Can't seem to find 13" tires in the tampa clearwater area and even tried tire rack. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

How about some Kumho Ecsta V700's in a 235/45-13. I have a set on my 7. I think they are running a $100 rebate on tires right now.

I just seen your intro the tires I listed above should work for you, but if you were looking for drag tires M&H sells a 22" & a 23" slick for 13"x8" wheels.

I'm pretty sure Mickey Thompson & Hoosier sell tires for those wheels too.

I know that Toyo has R888 and RA1 in 13" as I have brought in both spec tires for a `85 Starlet. I don't see why they wouldn't offer street tires.

If you are still having trouble getting tires, please let me know. I have several wholesale tire suppliers in FL as well as some shop owners in Tampa that might help you out.
