Bought them by chance here in Russia. Found them while surfing local equivalent of Craiglist
Quite rare R13. Were brand new. Being sold in town 60 miles from my place. So had to drive 120 miles to get them
Paid $200 per set of 4

White Letter Tires in 13 inch here in the USA have not been available for more than a decade. :x

I actually have those same tires on my Sunbird. They are 13 years old!!! LOL
