My 93 VX is about due for new shoes. I want to go back to the original size, 165/70 13. I'm sure someone with this car has LRR tires on it. I guess what i'm asking is about is first hand experience on their VX with LRR tire brands.
I owned a '95 VX from brand new until 2007 when I sold it with 225,000 miles on it. I couldn't find a low mileage replacement, so I bought a '95 DX hatchback and installed a VX transmission. I bought a set of Sumitomo HTR T4, size 175/70/13 tires and have put about 60,000 miles on them. They're definitely LRR tires (and 51 psi max)...the car rolls forever. But they have - at best - marginal wet and dry traction and handling characteristics. The only reason I didn't buy the 165s is because they were $10 more per tire than the common 175 size.
You should search the Gassaver.org forums for other LRR tire threads because a lot has been written about them. But I'm pretty sure the Sumitomo HTR T4 is the only LRR option for 165/70/13. If you're willing to stick w/ 175/70/13, you have many options such as the Sumitomo T4, Michelin Destiny, Michelin Harmony and Michelin X. I also recall a Kumho tire mentioned on one of the threads.
By getting these tires, you'll guarantee that your odometer and speedometer will be accurate. But yes, cems70 is right when he says that you'll get a much bigger selection if you go up a size in tires.. One benefit I forgot to mention is that the 165/70-13 tires weigh less than the 175/70-13 tires which should help with acceleration and mileage a bit.
