So i found a Vintage set of 13x7 wheels that fit on the swiftImage It had a set of Sumitomo tyres 215/50/13. but they were from 1999. dry rotted . real bad. so i dumped them.Image now the problem all i can find is 60 series tyres. sumitomo quit making low pro tyres. so what is the best option do i have? i can still find 215/50/13 but for track use. auto X and time attack . but for street use nada! :cry:

Recently figured out that race tires for Legends cars are Federal 205/60 r13. That's not ideal, but with the right backspacing should fit just fine (slightly shorter than 185/60 r14). They are DOT and have deep tread--no one in the series knows what to do with the take offs, so if they wear out right away, it might not be a problem as there is a limitless supply of free tires.

The only thing is to find a road course set, as they "camber cut" them. Either that or run one side backwards. I am picking up a free set today to experiment with...
