Mine came with a set of the CN36s.  Obviously they're no good anymore.  235/60/13!

I wish they still made the 235/60/13 and the 215/60/13 CN36 Pirellis.  The 235/60 was a very tall tire for a 2002 but it was great on a Big Fendered Ford Capri or Sunbeam Tiger.  The 215/60/13 on 7"-8" wheels would fit great on a Turbo.

There are a couple of Michelin R compound tires that would fill our fenders very nicely but they are more like a Intermediate rain tire and about $350 ea.  There used to be some great choices of 13" tires back when our cars were new (I worked at a tire shop that was the largest Pirrelli P7 dealer in the US in 1975)

There is the totally period correct 185/70 VR 13 Pirelli CN36  Cooker and Longstone sell them. 

 

Still only 185/70, but besides the excellent Pirelli CN36 (currently $160 at Longstone) and the Michelin XDX (currently $309), Uli A. (forum member uai, an extremely-respected, performance-minded ‘02 colleague from Germany) highly praises the Avon CR6ZZ (currently $262).

 

Regards,
