Who or where are can someone buy 13" low profile tires at.?

Are they that rare now.? I have a set of 13x7's wheels that need tires.

Thanks in advance.

They aren't common as they used to be. I usually Google the size I'm looking for and the tire rack or America's tire usually have some info. You'll most likely have to order them though.

Thanks "Dolomite"...

Yeah I remember back then they were I dime a dozen for the 13" but damn I didn't think they were this hard to get a hold of..

Just keep searching I guess..

Why would you need / want low profile 13 inch tires?  Surerly not for your 1964 VW bug!  Most OEM 13 inch tires were "80" profile.

Nice. Thanks Dave. That also led me to an Achilles option in the same size.

If you buy either of those please update with your thoughts after a few miles.

I've been looking to get some 13's as well and these are the only street options I can find.

Haven't had great luck with Federal in another size in a different car so am leary in those. And not familiar with Achilles at all.

I have the toyo ra1's in the 205/60/13 flavour. They are great. Not good for the winter at all.. They say take them off if its going to be below -7c.. What that is in american weird temperature i dont know. They are R compound tires. Theyre okay in the rain when theyre new, but once they get worn to their badass stage with two grooves left theyre not good in the rain

I use Hoosier vintage TDs on the race car. 185/60D13 these have a 20.6 diameter, they are bias ply. I'll likely have an extra set at the end off the month, anyone can have if they like as I'll be putting a new set of rubber on before the fall races. Pretty much 0 threadeear, even when heat cycled out they are stickier than any street tire could hope to be. Of course like any good race tire they are lousy in the rain because there is almost no tread. They are also $860 a set mounted and balanced. They are a fantastic tire but they are only good for 8 days on track.

Avon cr500 and ZZS is available in 245/50r13. High performance, but technically still a street tire. Possibly has to be ordered from Europe though...

 

Mickey Thompson makes a street legal 245/50r13 as well.
