Just got off the phone with my local tire guy.
He has 4 of the Maxxis coming Wednesday, $436 mounted and balance.

Yes, Virginia, 13" tires still do exist.

Thanks,

Thanks Ed, i'm trying to get the cardiologist to listen to me but they think they know better. Hope everything works out as I need new tires for my 28 Dodge.

We have plenty of these tires in stock, that are fresh as we buy most of the stock each time these come in to the country, usually based on our orders. so keep the orders coming and these will continue to be available.

At $140 per tire their stock will likely last a while. We purchased for under $90 per tire.
Corvair guy since 1982. I have personally restored at least 20 Vairs, many of them restored ground up.

The Amazon.com North Carolina vendor was just at $100 per tire with free shipping, which makes the Coker Tire price somewhat ridiculous! Perhaps this whole debate really points to a time for a serious look at 14" or 15" rims, which opens the door to a wider range of tire options in brand, performance, and price! The problems associated with sticking with the original, obsolete 13" tire specification after half a century will only get worse with each passing year. If your car is a driver and not just a show car, the 14" or 15" or larger wheel size will lead to better, safer and more-affordable street tires for your classic Corvair.
