I picked these up through Yahoo auctions. They're old Work 13X8 (pictured) and 13X7's. I'll probably get around to repainting the centers and polishing the lips soon.

More pics to come installed when the rain quits. They stick out 35mm's so I'm in need of some flares soon.

Nice set up. One question: What size are those tires? Look like 175/50's or perhaps 60's?.
Nice Wheels/nice package.
Jaime.

They're 200/500 - 13's. I have no idea what this equates to in more regular sizing. Anybody know?

By my calculations, and I may be 100% bass-ackwards, those tires came out to be approximately 205/40-13.

 Re: New Wheels
2332owner, there should be another size on the tire (even in japan? -- other pics I've seen had standard size markings). 200/500 is something I've never heard of. If they are 13s (non-metric), then the size should also be standard, something like 205/50.

 Re: New Wheels
Jap race tyres are sized this way, so 200mm wide, 500 mm tall...

These would be roughly equivalent to a Hoosier 20.0x7.5x13 slick, or praps a 225/35/13 road tyre

Thanks, I hadn't heard of those.

approximately 225/35/13 -- that's one wide and low tire!

My Bridgestone Potenza slicks are 205/515/13's. 205 wide 515mm diameter, and suit 7" x 13 inch rim. YD1 compound is very sticky as well.

 Re: New Wheels
Now that's a size I've been wanting. I've searched some US tire sites, but nothing like this showed up. I suppose I need to contact a race tire supplier?(US).......... Jaime, when you were talking about "stretchies", are you saying I take my stock steel rims to someone & they widen them? Cause I haven't found a 12 or 13" rim that I like yet.(not many choices either).............PS: It looks like those are functional two piece rims. Quite neccessary with such a short sidewall?
