A member of the "Cosworth Vega Owners" group on Facebook has found a possible source for new BFG 205/60-13 radial T/A's. These would be manufactured in Mexico. He is trying to get commitments from owners wanting to purchase to give a number to the manufacturer for a one time buy. If you are interested please add your $.02

I'm trying to get contact info for you to send your reply to so I don't end up getting things mixed up. By the way, the set he purchased was $320 for the set but he doesn't have a price on the group buy yet until he has more info.
I'm definately interested in a couple sets of those RWL Radial T/A's in that size as I did not go for the 15 inch upgrade and am going to be running 13's in that size as long as possible.
For what its worth, there are currently some black letter 205/60/R13's on sale from the place I got a set from last year. Though they havent been mounted or run-tested yet, they look ok. Some pix below ..
p.s. I emailed Bob and asked for 2 full sets of those RWL Radial T/A's.
