185/80 R13 tires

Post by NWMO » Wed Jan 01, 2020 1:28 pm

Hey all,

I’m on the look out for some tall 13” tires. I’m liking these wheels, but want 24” or so total height.

I will ask my local used tires people to keep an eye out for that size. I believe it is pretty uncommon even for 13in tires though.

I believe I have a spare wheel identical to the picture you posted if you ever need one by the way.

I ran that size of tire on my first tercel for a bit. I liked the look but found the ride felt a bit mushy.

thanks fellas,

would love to find some economical used tires to give it a feel. The suspension would be stiffer than stock, so that may help some.

This is probably more than you want to spend but I haven't found many options. The white walls are a nice touch.

Thanks Diarmait,

After kicking things around, I’ve got a custom plan for my old 14s off the Prizm. Thanks for thinking of me, I will likely try to sell the 13s. I will be working on the Rusty Frog this weekend, looking forward to coming down.

Chris,

I would consider buying the 13's from you. What's funny is that I sold my one wheel like yours to Professor since I didn't have a set anyway haha.

I've been looking forward to the expo and the drive in a couple of weeks also.
