I am also running HTR200 215/50/13. But you can find federal FD1, and nankang in 195/60/13. I would be running a 60 series tire because they are cheap! but my car is too low.

215/50/13's Kuhmo 710's

Probably the best street tire would be the Sumitomo's but they really don't have super traction... If I ran these on the street I'd go w/ a 225/55/13 if they make it...

I was running the Sumitomo HTR200's on my RX-7 with 13's. I should've gone with the 215/50R13's...I like them though. Good street tires, and actually had a surprising amount of grip as well.

yeh, 215/50/13 would be good, but i cant get anything like that over here.

it will be for mainly street use, the easiest ones to get are 175/70/13 and 185/60/13

the 175/70 is closest to the original rolling radius, would this be a better choice?

I'm running 13x8 RBs, love em.

Using Sumi HTR200 215/50/13. Good luck trying to find other brands. The next step is Yoko AO32's or the rare AO48s, and they are more track-oriented (read: louder and wear faster).
I used to run his 13x8's with sumi htr200... I liked it lol
215/50/13 look pimpu

i had 13x8 with zero offset and the onlything they were good for was looking good and drag racing other then that i would never put them back on my car unless they had some r-compounds on them. i ran 205/60/13 tires.

useless just because of the difficulty in getting a good sized tire?
