But to address the issue you've raised, a 155/80R13 has an allowable rim width of 4 to 5".
I'm researching the best tire for that. Michelin Energy XM2s or Goodyear Duraplus are on my list currently, Yokohama's Bluearth models too since they are pretty well known for having a balanced ride.

Correct me if I'm wrong, since I emphasize on the ETRTO specified rim width too much may I know what happens when you fit a tire on the widest end of its allowed width? Will have any adverse effects? I know it lessens sidewall flexing, which in turn nets lower LRR. All at the expense of comfort I presume.
