Hey! Mike,

You do know that you can buy the same size tire in a "V" rating from Universal Vintage Tire Co. in the US for $187.00 each + shipping. They are manufactured by Vredestein but, are not RWL. 205 x 60VR13 Sprint Classics. Of course, they are not BFGs. Universal Vintage Tire Co. advertises in Hemmings Motor News. John and Richard.

There is no substitute for vintage RWL tires from the 70's.

The bfgoodrich site won't let me type in a Canada zip code.

They are also available at Coker tire as well:

I wonder if Summit or Coker would send to Canada? Shipping in US looks to be free from Summit or Coker, at least for now...

Summit does ship to Canada and they have a great set-up for much reduced fees over here [When compared to the usual beating we take] :D as for Coker IDK they didn't have an appropriate tire when I last needed tires. As for stock, many sites list our things but can't supply when called upon. :( Harry

Mine are on order from Summit. $114.95 each with free shipping. Coker has them for $114.00 but they charge shipping. My local dealer wanted $130+ each for them.

Now...I wait..............................

Well I ordered a set from Summit today to ship to Washington State, I have a P.O. box there. Then I will go pick them up and bring them into Canada myself. Summit says they are back ordered until early March so I will wait and see.

I have a set of BFGs ordered at my local dealer. I think it's cool that they are available. Hopefully there's enough demand to keep them in production.

Well this didn't take long. I would much prefer the BF Goodrich but here are some new RWL 185/70R13 offerings for $50. They also have 175s available.

I wasn't aware that the 185/70R13 and 175/70R13 sizes ever went completely away. There are a couple places that have continued to list them new. Even Walmart has a "Mastercraft" 185/70R13 with RWL:
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mastercraft-A-S-IV-85S-Tire-P185-70R13/47406023

I'd like to see a P195/70R13 come back. I feel like they fill the opening better than the 185/70 or the 205/60.

Those look like "V" rated 149MPH..The TA's are "S" rated at 118mph..

I agree I have the 205 on my car now and not crazy about the short tires., But them RWL TA's do look awesome..

BTW...I got mine from Summit Racing for $114.95 each with free shipping. I checked their site today and they've increased to $147.99! Coker still has them listed for $114 but shipping is extra. I wonder if Summit would match Coker's price?
