If you want to go to 195/70, Mastercraft (I think made by Cooper, but not 
certain) are still available.  I just bought one 1/2 hour ago - well ordered 

Later, JR

> Firestone still makes 13" narrow band whitewalls in the FR380 series.  Not

> I have them on my 69, love the whitewall look, and they perform decently. 
> I drive my car daily  and mostly local, and highway handling isn't too 
> bad.  Actual is is P175/80R13.
> The "original" 70-series Goodrich Radial R/Ts that were on the car when I 
> got it, provided better handling, but I didn't like the white letters and 
> the width added steering effort, so I'm pretty happy with 380s.
> I run pressures of 24F  34R.
> Better get 'em while they last, who knows when they'll stop making them.
