Hi friends!
My Falcon had some flood damage last fall but we are piecing her back together slowly. (Yes, it was devastating and yes, I cried) I am wondering if anyone has a good recommendation for quality tires that aren't super expensive. Coker Tire has the set of 4 for $384 plus shipping. P175/80 r13, 5/8 inch whitewalls. I wanted to pick your brains for a good site that might have them for a better price.
Thanks!!!

The closest to correct size is 185/80r13 so i would be looking for that size.

Maxxis m1a is the most commercially available. Best prices are usually found on line. My local les schwab could order them so you might want to check there.

Expect to pay around a $100 a tire though. The days of cheap tires are long gone.. between the crack down on tires made over seas and the elimination of the smaller tire sizes have driven prices up.

Milestar tires are inexpensive and they look good.

I bought a replacement "1-New Milestar MS775 All Season Touring P175/80R13 86S Whitewall Tire" off Amazon for $62.99 with free shipping.

Here is one for $55 plus free shipping: http://www.amazon.com/1-New-Milestar-Season-Touring-Whitewall/dp/B0198009XU/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1461529746&sr=8-6&keywords=Milestar+MS775

Here is what they look like:

I have Milestar 14" tires on my Ranchero - very nice look and profile. Don't have tire-specific images, but this post in my Ranchero thread has pics of them:
