Another 13" tire option


Gordon

Recommended Posts

While researching 15" Vredestein tires for my tii, I noticed that Vulcan Tire carries the Vredestein classic tire lineup for those of you still running 13" tires.

https://www.vulcantire.com/sprint_classic_t.htm   

For those of you running 15" tires on your 02, Vulcan carries the Sportrac 5 195/50-15 V rated summer high performance tire for $75 each.

Interesting that 205/60 x 13's are cheaper than 185/70 x 13's...

Am running the Sprint Classics 205/60 13s on 6 inch rims and handling is excellent. A great touring tire. Also have the Cinturato 185/70 13 on the original FPS alloys and they are excellent too. The former do put a little more rubber on the road  - evident in hard cornering.

Not the best pics as these were meant to highlight the car, not the tires and wheels. But they should do...

Fantastic! Good luck.

 

Out of curiosity, what wheels do you have? (I love wheels!!)

 

BTW, other threads mention 205s on 5 1/2 inch wheels but say they can be "squishy"

The current 205/60-13 Toyo RA1s do rub the outer front fenders on hard cornering, but prior Yokohama AVS Intermediates, and all others cleared well all the way back to ‘78 when the Cromodora CD40 “Dino” 13x6 et15 wheels were bought new. Both front and rear fender lips are lightly rolled.

I just wanted to see it again, Tom! I guess I’m just a sucker for a low-number tii, in Colorado, with Cromodora’s... ?


And I don’t mind that it’s only had one owner, some might... ?

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
