Wondering if anyone has put on 205/60-13 on their car with the original rims!? Thinking about going up a little. Wanted to see a pic if someone has done it already.



Thanks!

I've got 205/60-13's and stock rims on my TR8. Let me know if you would like a better/closer/different angle photo(s).

i had dunlop 205/60x13's on my tr7 fhc (i have tr8 front brakes on this car). I liked them, but couldn't get another set of dunlops in 13 inch size so I ended up purchasing sumitomo's from tire rack -- one of BCF's sponsoring vendors so click on the banner from this web site. I went to 195/60-13's because under certain conditions I was getting tire scrubbing with the 205's. Usually with the wheels turned to one extreme on an incline.

I used to get some rub on full turn and suspension under compression. But that stopped after I installed new springs and strut inserts. No more rubbing with my 205's.

Here are some closer pics.
