need some help with this....looks like 185 60 r14s are becoming hard to get in certain makes and tread patterns, everything I've looked at has a real rounded profile and will make the car look like its standing on 10p pieces! toyo proxes t1rs have been suggested to me but I can't seem to find them in this size. Help please

Not sure if that's any help

They are not the tyre you mentioned! You would just need to check they have sufficient load and speed rating!

Default Tyres

Hi there have you tried Camskill.co.uk. Plenty on there from 30 odd pounds up to a think it was 70 pounds. Plenty of variety Aswell.from micheln - pirelli. I have had plenty of tyres from them in the past for my other weekend cars. And very always helpful. Hope this helps.
