We got what is listed on TireRack as 6.40SR13 but Vredestein lists them
as 6.40/7.00R13. They are by all measurements the same size as the
7.00-13 OEM Corvair tires. The Mercedes sedans of the late 50's to
early 60's used 6.40-13 and 6.70-13 tires which are somewhat narrower,
but very close in rev/mile to the low profile [for the time] Corvair
7.00-13. The modern P185/80R13 is the /de facto/ replacement size.
I knew these were summer only tires, but was surprised by the warning on
TireRack about low temperature use and storage with any weight on the
tires below 40F. I am glad my 500 Sport Sedan is stored in a 50F heated
