Question Best LRR and ALL 13" stock Civic VX tires sizes available and where to buy?

Guys i see 13" tires are getting hard to buy those days as there isn't that many cars on the road with that tire size those days. Where you guys buy your tires for your 13" size tires and what is best Low Rolling Resistance tire out there for VX?

these days. Vredestein discontinued the tires I liked in 13" The Quatrac 2. I think Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels rates tires by performance, longevity and rolling resistance.

I just bought some Sumitomo 175/70/13 's yesterday and I like them so far. They are quieter than what I had. They are high pressure; 51 PSI 560 treadware/A/B. I've been checking my odometer to see if the small change in Aspect Ratio from changing the size slightly is affecting it and it doesn't seem to. I found the 165/70/13's online but it was going to cost so much more with shipping that it wasn't worth it for me. I got four new ones, balanced and mounted for $258. out the door!

Actually they emailed me..

"unfortunately we do not have this tire in stock. It appears as if this tire has been discontinued."

Hey guys i found LRR Michelin Energy Saver but they are 1" taller 14" vs stock wheel size of 13". Can that be installed? Is that a bad idea for MPGs. What would be a side effect?

I got a set of Kumho Eco Solus in 175/70-13 at America's Tire in Vancouver. After $100 rebate, they were dirt cheap. Jury's out on results, had too many other mods and repairs to isolate the effect of tires.
