i was that (un)lucky to buy my '02 with that alloys (13x7 front + 13x8 back). the car drives great, no bigger fuel consumption, but.....
when it comes to tyres buying time, it SUCKS!!!!
here, in eastern europe i have very hard time finding tyres! it would be perfect to have 205/50/13 front and something like 225/?/13 on back ones. but, the biggest ones i found were 205/50/13, so i use them fot the back and 185/60/13 in front. i've managed to find some 225/40/13 yokohama tyres, but guys wanted 300$ for piece! next time maybe!
how it is going in states/western europe with that size of tyres? any recomendation for international orders?
