a 215/50r13" fits without rubbing on a miata... but you need 13x8" rims
VZN185 - 32" BFG AT, 32" TOYO MT, OME suspension, ARB bumper, Warn winch, 3sixty LED light bar, TRD trans cooler, TRD exhaust, AMT sliders, budbuilt skids...
ZWA10 - stock F-sport with LEDs...

If you're looking for a tire with good performance and for cheap, Sumitomo makes their HTR200 tire in quite a few hard to get small sizes.

Most notably, you can get them in 175/50r13 and 205/50r13. The former is what I run on my 13x5 wheels on my Honda CRX. Super light weight (24lbs including wheels!) and a very small OD for less inertia, and the equivalent of buying a set of aftermarket gears. In my CRX, I go from 4.25 -> the equivalent of having a 4.50 final drive with the OEM tires.

It's lots of fun.
I don't have a girlfriend. I just know a girl who would be really mad if she heard me say that.

1992 Plymouth Laser RS-Turbo AWD (lean and mean)
1990 Honda CRX Si with JDM '99 D15b 3-stage VTEC swap and custom built trans with tall 5th gear. 45mpg!

to the OP: figure out your application and go from there. There is a MASSIVE difference between the V700 and an all-season tire. The V700 is a competition (R-comp) tire -- it's road legal but won't last too long if you daily drive it.

I believe that Teamwork AutosporKs can get Kumho r-comps in for you if that's what you're looking for.
