Looking for a set of 4 or 5 185 70 13 bf goodrich redline radials.Want brand new or slightly used.I do not want tires older than 3 years old.The ones on my spyder look perfect but are 20+ years old.I do not want to die in a corvair wreck due to a tire failure.I know coker has them but I thought I would put out some feelers to the crowd to see if I can get some.Thanks. needpart

Just went through that, I feel your pain. I was running 205 70 13 perfect revs per mile but wide. Loved them. Coker is the only place that had them $$$$, went to 14" instead, happy with the decision

I appreciate leaving it with stock wheels.

Expensive but exact size and brand new.

185 70 13 fits an early just fine. A little taller works for late models.

They fit fine and I run them but they are a lot shorter. Makes the speedometer really optimistic.

My new tires from Coker showed up today.Other than being old the ones I am taking off look new with full tread.They don't shake or wobble either.They would be great on a show car that is'nt driven but I would not trust them for long distance.I am guessing that the tires are 20 years old but they have never been exposed to the sun as the car was always inside.I just paid Coker 900 dollars for the new ones.I would like to sell the old ones for 200 for the set of 4.I can deliver them to the Maggie valley show next month.If interested,send me a pm with your email or text info and I can shoot some pics out.Thanks.
