Any ideas on new 205/60/14 tires? My set of Yokohama's are around 10 years old and I can't find any tire maker that makes decent tires in that size. Thanks.

I just ordered some Federal SS595. If you are still looking I will let you know how they feel.

I have an 87 with almost 15K miles on it so I think the ride height is close. There is 215 60R14 on it now and if I corner hard they rub.
I should get the 205 60R14 on by the end of the weekend and will let you know.

Finally took a spin in the car with the new tires. I like them
They ride nice, have good traction on a dry road, haven’t beenin the wet, they look good and you can’t beat the price.
