Where on God's green earth do I come up with 215/50-13 tires. Current ones are Sumitomo and in good shape but I cannot locate anything close in size.

I'd be willing to go to 14's but I don't see much to pick from there either.

The Kumho's I knew about but racing slicks (almost) for street....not so much
The Yokohama's look the best. Hope they're still in production.

The Continental's are way too small

Just looked for Yokohama A032R-S... discontinued. Maybe I can find some old stock.

I may have found some YOKOHAMA A032R 215/50/R13 but they're listed as "soft" compound. Anyone have experience with the life of these kind of tires on the road?

I've seen several 14" and even 15" rims with 4 bolt, 100mm pattern. There are a couple of Yokahama's that are 45 series that would work. However, offsets and such are unknown to me.
All I know is that the diameter I have is 21.5"...
