As Paul mentioned, I did put the Sumitomo HTR-200's on my 80 B. They ride and handle well, and were nicely priced. Got them from the Tire Rack and had them mounted and balanced on the Rostyles by on

What kind of tires are you getting. If you have to have Michelin or something like that, then yes, they have to get them from Coker. I put new tires (Rostyle) on my 77 for about $280 for 5 tires, mou

You have a few options depending on what you want. If you wish to keep the older 165 size for originality and vintage look then you can get Kumho and the Vredsteins at Talon Tire in Canada for less.

Good to know. I've been driving my new tires from Tire Rack for a couple months now. The Sumitomo's were out of stock at the time, so I got Kumho 758 (I think) in 185/70HR14. I like them a lot too. O

Depends on what you mean by "correct". if you want a wider, low profile tire, yes. If you want what was originally installed, try 165R14. Also available, for a little more tread and a tad more ground
