I was bidding on this NEW set of the hard to find 205/50r13 BF Goodrich tires. I will take them if they go for my bid, but I think I decided to go ahead and upgrade to 14" rims instead.

Currently it is at my max bid $151.51 for the set. $152.00 or somethign liek that will take them.

They aren't they are a older street tire. Finding a 205/50r13 is damn near impossible anymore. These were the last brand that made them or so I have heard. Really nice tires if you plan on staying with 13"

I'm running 205/60R-13 Sumitomo radials on BMW spec'd 13X6 BBS RA's on my Sportwagon right now. the only problem is where the splash guard up front, under the nose extends out towards the wheel well. Just trim that extension off and you're good to go.

Tires

Those BFG's are out of production. There's a nice Falken 205/60-13 that's also out of production, but Highperformancetires.com still has 3-4 sets available. I got a set a couple of weeks ago. Nice looking tires. They were about $220 delivered.

I got a pair of 205-60-13 BFG Radial T/A's last winter from TireRack for $62 each. Too bad they are discontinued, I love the T/A's. Summit Racing had some listed back then when I was shopping for tires, maybe they still have some. There are Micky Thompson Sportsman "I" tires in sizes; 215-50-13, 225-50-13, and 245-50-13. Those would be cool. :cool:
