<VV> Tire size (revisited)

For a number of years, I don't know how many, the 195/70R-14 was standard on
the Toyota Camry.  For that reason if no other, the tire should be available
for some time to come.

As for the 7" wheels, I have the 195/70R-14 on my 7" wheels and they seem to
be fine.  When I replace them in the spring, I will also be looking
seriously at the Yokohama AVID as well.

I just did a quick search for 195/70-14 tires and came up with 15 
different manufactures and 48 different tires.
