      i have a 78 rabbit lowered on coilovers. i have a set of carrol shelby basket weave rims from a dodge omni that are 13x6.

      so im trying to find tires that will fit them and hopefully not spend more on the tires the i did on the car.

      what size tires would best work with this combo. thanks
      i wish you were beer

      The standard stock tire for that year was a 175/70/13

      You could run a 165/70/13

      my only thoughts with something that close to stock tires, is rubbing issues.

      id like to find something a bit more low profile. but alot of the 13s ive been seeing are a bit thicker so i dont know how they would look with a 6 inch width.
