Howdy, everyone. Life has worked out that since I saw people at the Vintage back in 2012(!) I still kept my coupe, letting it slumber away in a storage unit until I have a garage at long last. Now, after that long hiatus, the tires I got back then are pretty terrible. You can see the discoloration, and they keep air for about 2 weeks at a time.

So, I've got the stock 14" 'turbine' wheels currently wearing 205/70 R14 tires. Based on looking on Tire Rack and Discount Tire, nobody seems to make a high-performance all season in that size. If I have to get new wheels, I guess I will, but with other expenses in my life right now I would prefer not to. What tires do you all suggest for the stock wheels given the modern selection?

Thanks!

you can look into the pirelli cn 36 repops ... https://www.longstonetyres.co.uk/pirelli-collezione/cinturato-cn36/205-70wr14-pirelli-cinturato-cn36.html. price has gone up on them, now 300 a piece.

coker has the michelin xwx repop for 360 a piece - https://www.cokertire.com/tires/brands/michelin-tires/michelin-xwx.html

coker also has a more reasonably priced tire - goodrich radial t/a for 131 a piece - https://www.cokertire.com/tires/brands/bf-goodrich-tires/bf-goodrich-t-a-radials.html

coker also has the vredestein sprint classic in 195/70 ... and is 195 a piece - https://www.cokertire.com/tires/brands/vredestein-tires/195-70vr14-vredestein-sprint-classic.html

How about the General Altimax RT43? I found that in the right size. The tire rack report was fairly glowing. It is a far cry from a Pilot SuperSport, but it is a lot more reasonably priced.
