New 165/70 R13 tires avalible!

I was poking around tirerack.com and noticed that they have a 2nd choice for 165/70 R13 tires avalible! this is a vast improvment over the only other tires in this size that they have offered, as they have a lower price, longer wear life, better traction, higher side wall presure, I hope the continue to carry these as it is a size that is not avalible in my area thru any of the tire stores in the phone book.

Why not use a 155/80 R 13? A little narrower and taller. Just curious.

Yeah, a smaller contact patch would be less frictional resistance.

the 165/70-13 tires are slightly smaller around then 155/80-13 so your spedometer will be acurite with this size if, like in the case of the civic vx and crx hf, it is the recomended tire size, and is what they came with when new, and atleast with this new modle that they are offering, they are 51psi max presure, and over 500 on the wear life, both of those are mildly uncommen in 13" tires

Here's a photo for those that may want a peek. Couldn't find one of the Yokohama.

I went with the Vredestein Quatrac 2 .....I found these in 155/80R13 size at: http://www.tiresunlimited.com/ALL&#3...ed_quatrac.htm . 51psi and LRR.

So far, they're great....rain and ice...haven't driven on snow yet...maybe this weekend.

I've mentioned these tires (and it's the Sumi HTR T4, not H4) probably a half a dozen times in various threads when someone asks about LRR tires in size 165/70/13. I bought a set of these in 175/70/13 at Sears last April for $37 each (on sale) because the 165s were $46 each. $41 at Tirerack is a great price. Wish I had gone w/ the 165s because my '95 Civic DX hatch w/ the VX/CX tranny registers about 4% too few miles with the incorrect 175 tire size.

The tires are awful in snow and ice and even in the rain, so beware...

I went from 195/50R-15s to the 155/80R-13s, and like someone else said..."was like power steering". Much more fun to drive, especially in town.

The wider tires/rims look cool, but I'm kind of getting past that.
