Default Does 185/60/14 not exist anymore?

------- tire rack only has all seasons in any size I try. ********. I want something decent for warm weather driving, but I dont need anything that costs $600 for a set. I have Sumitomo htr 200s on the back now which I like, which seem to be discontinued. They are grippy enough that they dont slide around unless I want them to.

onlinetires.com has the faulken 912s.
discounttires.com has the faulken 512s, supposedly.

They do appear to be scarce though. Weird. Time for 6uls!

14s are getting really hard to find in general. Same for a 60s MOPAR, 70s and 80s MBs, 90s Miatas. Fortunately, I've already upgraded to 15s in two of the above cases. Now I just have to figure out what to do with the wife's 380SL.

So now I'm waiting for 15s to get hard to find. At least it's easy to find 22s!! Go figure.

Rant off.

Thanks, I had not come across discounttires.com in my searching. Falken Ziex ZE-912 28921451 - 185/60R14, $57 each.

I've been running star specs in that size. $109 each, but great tire.

Star specs come in 185, Falken Azenis and a few others are available in 195/60-14, but yes, the numbers are diminishing.

I would suggest going to 15" wheels. The tire selection is better and you can get the wheels for pretty cheep from CL or the classifieds.

WOW! Why didn't I think of that, do you have pictures of a miata with 22s? That would mean by top speed will be 180mph!!! SHWEET
