What 16in wheels are you running?

They are 16x6.5J rims, from a 200(2?) Mercury cougar. I also grabbed the rear disc brake setup cause the discs slide over the rear hubs

a 195/50R15 (22.7" OD)will fit a 5.5" wheel, and a 205/50R15 (23.1 OD)
will fit a 6.5" wheel....

Yes that is about the size range that I was thinking, I will see what sort of rims are out there. I am thinking of importing some from the U.K. simular to these.

Unless I can find some in the U.S. or Canada at a normal price.
It's troubling that it costs more to ship parts around our Continent than it does from the U.K. ???

Regarding 13" tires. I work at a tire shop, and the 185/80 13s are only trailer tires. But you can get car tires in a 175/70 13. Bit of a lower profile. There isnt any selection though. We only get the Goodrides in that size and all have the same speed and load rating. Instinctively Ive started grabbing every useable 13" tire we scrap, so Ive got a couple.
