Hi guys,

I just bought a set of Kobe Seiko Rally Mags (repops) and they currently have Advan Type D 195/70R14 tyres fitted.

Problem is they are date stamped 2017, so 5 years old now and shipping with them attached to the wheel will double the cost of freight from say $700 to $1300 odd..

So I'll likely have to discard them. But I want those tyres still! Problem is nobody seems to sell them locally here and they appear to be special order.

Does anyone know if someone local would offer them? Or know of an online place to order which won't cost a bomb shipping wise?

I'm open to alternatives but previous experience finding 14' tyres that are not aimed at the trailer market are limited to date.

I am tempted to keep the tyres on just so I can fit the wheels right away without having to wait. But from the description of the listing they are quite worn too in terms of tread.

Any suggestions welcome!

Not sure how these are rated re car vs trailer use but I went with these Dunlop 195/70R14 Sport Classic 91V, edit - decided I would npt be exceeding 210kph so went with the Dunlop LM Sport 704 195/70R14 91H

Others that may suit : https://www.stuckey.com.au/Tyres/TyreSearch?Search=195/70R14

Russell at Stuckey Tyres (Brunswick, Melb) may be able to source Advan.

added the "actual" tyres I put on the 260Z

Very true when looking for a 175 tyre (of correct circumference to match the 195/70R14) that will fit in the spare wheel well without protruding above the floor level.

Any photos of what these look like? I'm after the vintage looking tyres. All the photos online via Google Image show generic images.

This is the Dunlop LM Sport 704 195/70R14 on the 1974 alloys of my 260z not a classic looking tread but the correct profile and circumference :

Whereas the Bridgestone RD-102 "wide" 195/70 R14 tyres that came with the car in 1974 had this tread pattern (similar to those posted by NickF):

a couple more you could try 175 will be ok on 6" rim

Problem is the Kobe Seiko wheels are 7" wide.

Maybe the Vredestein Sprint Classic 195/70r14 on the Kobe Seiko wheels and the 175R14 on the standard steel wheel for a spare that fits nicely in the spare wheel well without a "lump" showing in the rear floor area.

Perfect not  cheap but has the period look and the right size
