It's probably true that 13 inch tires will eventually go away from the "on
tire vendors...though I would expect that you could still special
There will always be specialty vendors like Coker Tire that will continue to
them...they reproduce many brands...but they tend to be more expensive since
limited runs of tires.
The real statement probably is that locally available cheap sources of 13
probably will go away over the next few years, and you will then have to go
vintage specialty suppliers, but they will exist for many years to come.
