13-inch RWL Tires

Postby mikebrow74 » Fri Jan 12, 2018 1:26 pm

I have successfully connected with a tire shop in Mexico (Serna #1) who gave me a quote of $273.37 USD for 4 205/60R13 BF Goodrich Radial T/As. They are on the Gulf Coast near the Texas Boarder. I am unfortunately in California. Shipping is a whopping $461 to me in Sacramento for a total of $734.37 delivered. ($183.60 each). I’m considering it but maybe I can find the same deal in Tijuana, much closer and a drivable distance. So I do want to confirm that these tires are still being produced and marketed in Mexico but not here in the USA.

From what I've heard, BFGs in this size aren't mad e in the US anymore.
There was talk of a group buy from Mexico, I'm not sure what ever came of it:

Unfortunately there was some difficulty in the shipping, at the prices in the first post here I guess that problem was the shipping price. They are being produced in Mexico.

The first week of each month I go to the BF Goodrich website. During daytime hours a service rep window will pop up and you can chat with the representative. They have access to the next 30 day production schedule. I ask if they have 205/60R13 Radial T/As scheduled for production. They always check and politely say no. I would encourage anyone who is interested in these tires to do the same periodically. They are still a cataloged tire but on national back order.

I am far away in California but I have confirmed that 205/60R13 BF Goodrich Radial T/As are available just over the border in Mexico. For those of you in the South Coastal area of Texas they are just over the border from Brownsville in Matamoros, Mexico.

The price is $273 for 4 tires.

You are allowed to bring back a maximum of $800 of merchandise without additional duty.

Their website is:

I am looking for an outlet in Tijuana.
