<VV> Correct Tire size

Does this help?


I know the standard EM size was 6.50 x 13, we had 7.00 x 13's on our 62 700
Club Coupe.  

I remember the lettered 78 series.  Anybody remember PolyGlas tires?

Hi Jason!
And if you want to find a standard tire that might still be around, a
185/75-13 is the most likely one you will find. A 185/70-13 is a little
small, but on a slightly lighter early model, maybe okay. And there are
still plenty of  those around.
Tire Size: 185/70-13
Both Kumho and Sumitomo are listed at Tire Rack Falken listed at Discount
Tire Direct
The 185/75-13s tend to jump up once in a while, then hide. Just don't buy a
trailer tire by mistake. A bunch of them made an escape to Canada, I have
heard!  <grin>
