looking for 16 inch tires for a Pre-a

I've Googled and checked with Shore tire and I can't find Pre-a tires. Can anyone direct me to a source? Thanks. Jim

Have you checked out the sources in the tire thread above?

There was a thread on the pre-A forum about a year and a half ago regarding 16 inch tires. Search the pre-a corner here for 16 inch tires and it should come up. I run 165-16 Avon tires out of Longstone Tyres in England and am very happy with them.

We're running Heidenau tire on Walt. Probably close to 7k on them now at speeds up to 80 no problems.
If your wanting the OE look and don't mind the marshmallowy feel ( once you get used to them its kinda fun ) these fit the bill. If your wanting less excitement in corners and cross wind you should look for Radials.
