HELP!! 185-70-14 Tires


Recommended Posts

Please Help. I have been very happy with Yokohama Avid H4 87H tires. However, H-Rated tires are NO longer available in my size -- P185/70R14.

The tire outlets want me to purchase T-Rated Avid T4 88T tires.

I know that I am not the only 185-70-14 guy left in this world. What brand/model tires are the rest of you using?

I have found that Sumitomo has H-rated tires in my size. Any opinions about Sumitomo.

No current personal experience with Sumitomo, sorry.

How wide are your rims? If they are 5.5" you might consider going with 195/65-14 instead. That size is within a fraction of the same diameter, a touch wider, and shows six H-rated choices at the Tire Rack. The Yokohama Avid H4S is one of them.

Well, the Sumitomo(s) probably won't work out either. I wanted the HTR+, but they are only available in 50-, 45-, and 40-series. The SRIXON4 are only available in 65- and 60-series.

The HTR200 is available in 70-, 65-, 60- and 50-series. However, this is a high-performance summer radial -- not all-season.

So far, my only options are:

1) Firestone Affinity LH30


2) Downgrade to T-Rated

3) Go low-profile with P195/65/R14

I had a terriible time finding tires on for 73, too. I wanted Japanese tires on my Z. I picked up Tire Rack's last Sumitomo HTR-4s last year 225-60-14 H rated. They found them in a hidden corner of their warehouse. They had not been advertised for 6 months and were discontinued. Be persistent. I'm happy with the tires. I didn't want BFGs. Good luck
