    well ive called everyone under the sun trying to find a known name brand tire in a 185-55-14 and no one has them at a good price, so far ive only found one place that even has them and the name brand they have is BCT some china made tire that ive never heard of so im scared of them, but there just 50 a tire and the other is a kumho at 142 a tire and thats way over what i want to spend, so i was wondering if anyone has used or heard of the bct tires. here is a link to them, and if you know of where i can get that size else where please let me know.tires-easy.com - Details: BCT S900 185/55 R14 80V

    why such an odd tire size?? thats why you cant find them or find them for a decent price.. because they arent mass produced ..

    Order them from Europe. Screw DOT spec, E-Code is more strenuous.

    I work at goodyear. I'll look today and see if I can find anything for you bro. Would you mind a 195/55 or 195/50?

    and I don't think they even make 205/35r17 tires, to be honest. At least I know we don't carry any of them. I think the smallest 205 sidewall I have seen is like 45.

    Dude, srsly. I just did a search on a german site, and I found 49 different summer tires.

    Everywhere from 30.50 EUR/ea to 89 EUR/ea. Shipping would probably be about $100 all said and done.
