I have to second that. If your new tires aren't rated for highway service, or have "D" anywhere in the size, or are rounded in the tread area, I can't advocate using them.

That said, I've put bike tires on cars. They weren't street cars primarily, though, so I can't attest to the true handling characteristics of them.

155/80/13 will work fine on your Metro.
