I own a 1963 Olds Cutlass F-85 convertible that takes P185/80R13 tires and I prefer a narrow white wall tire.

I am having a heck of a time finding tires. I can find blackwall tire or a wide white wall, but a narrow white wall looks best on the car.

This size is similar to sizes used on Corvairs. I thought I had found a solution with Firestone FR380 tires - they would have been perfect, but they have been discontinued.

Any suggestions?

Not a very active forum, I guess! Well, I'll post what I found in case it helps someone else. Try the Corvair Ranch in Gettysburg, PA. www.corvairranch.com.

The Corvair section here isn't very active. www.corvairforum.com is a good one.
