the size of tyres required for little old Moggy

Post by billythefish »

On my last little job before getting the moggy on the road, the wheels on the car have 165x13R 80T tyres on them,( I think they are van tyres ) but they are knackered, will any modern sized 13 tyre fit the 13inch rim, if not, what is the equivalent size to the 165x13R80T tyres do I need.
Kind Regards
Billy :oops:

Billy, standard rims are 14" with 4 x 4" pcd

13" would look a bit silly

I do understand that minor wheels and tyres should be size fourteens however, unfortunately, the car that I bought Blindly off Ebay had thirteens on, therefore, I never actually realised beforehand and now I'm stuck with them.
So I have to do the best I can, with what I've got at the moment.
Many thanks to those that replied
kind regards
Billy

I gather that 165x13R 80T are "commercial trailer" tyres, which are still available:

Thanks for that MM and much appreciated, I don't think it matters too much to the size of the wheels and tyres as I am only pottering about locally.
