Agreed your 13" selection is pretty lame. I would go at least 14's if you want steel back on and then you have any number of choices.

I use Yokohama AVID Tourning on my steelies. They grip nicely in snow.

I'd use the Sumitomo HTR 200 in 205-60-13. They have enough sidewall flex to fit, and you dont have to worry about them being summer tires in Florida. $42/tire from tire rack.

I second the Sumitomo HTR-200. I have them on my car right now! While they don't give super amazing grip, they grip far beyond what my LC's suspension can take.

I went with 185/60R13. The 205 just seemed too wide for my taste on a 5 inch wide wheel. Also, the sidewall would be very tall. The 185/60R14 has quite a short sidewall.

I found the sidewalls stiffened up quite a bit after some experimentation with tire pressures. I'm running 44psi front 43psi rear and it seems like a nice balance.

All in all, I love the tires, and they are hella cheap!! I've put about 6000kms on them and they still look new. Last long, grip well. Very happy.

The 205-60-13's are the same overal diameter as the stock 175-70-13.
