I can't seem to find LRR tires in sufficiently large R13 sizes to roughly match my R15s. I currently run 185/65-R15s. I figure with a larger tire, I could about match the overall diameter. But I have not identified a like size that is also LRR--not yet... tips?

If they mount-up. I'll take 'em. I'll pay cash and I'll come get 'em too, as soon as you PM back for more details on directions and such.

They are the same bolt pattern, so they should be fine. I've got a jack and torque wrench so we can try them on if you wish.

I won't be back until late Tuesday Aug 2, so anytime Wednesday or later is fine... I'll hold them for you. My email is my username @gmail.com, I'll reply with my contact info and phone number.

Rim weighs 9lbs., tire weighs 16lbs. Lightweight rims with near new rubber Hooray!
Having considered these rims before buying my Miata rims, to be precise the weight is 9.7lbs according to www.wheelweights.net/wheel-weight-weight.xls

Tires are 16 lbs yep
Michelin Harmony

Interesting the 175/65R14 Bridgestones I wanna get are only 14lbs each.

I am weakening and heading for my bank card. Do you still have these or did they get snapped up?
