I'm in pretty dire need of tires for the Midget. My brother had put
some 155/80 Pirellis on there some time ago, but is that the original
size or is it 145/80 (or something else)?
The wheels are the stock 13x4.5 wires. I'm assuming they're 4.5's, but
I'm not 100% sure. What I'm looking for are recommendations on brands
and sizes that'll work well on these wheels. I don't want an all
season, if possible, and rain performance isn't critical. I'd prefer a
performance tire of some sort. Also, I'd like as wide a tire as I can
reasonably put on these wheels. I'm thinking a 165 would likely be the
limit? But, would a 175/70-13 work okay or is too much? According to
Yokohama, a 4.5" wheel is the lower limit for a 175/70.
I don't mind going with a _marginally_ taller tire since the car's
geared so steeply, but it's rather difficult to do the calculations
when I don't know the orignal tire size. ;-) Oh yeah, I plan on
lowering the car about an inch or so, if that makes much difference.
And, yes, I checked the archives before posting, but didn't find what I
was looking for. :-)
