R13 x 10 inch..tyre advice

Does anyone use 10 inch width wheels? Ive got a set of Gotti 073A split rims R13, rears are 10 inch width and fronts 9 inch....what track tyres would fit? Toyos and Advans dont seem to go wide enough.

Ive got a track only car, and used to run the Gotti rims but with slicks on. Due to wet weather ruining a track day i brought some mini lite stye rims that were 6 inch wide and i stuck some Advans on which are good in wet and dry but the narrow look crap on the car....look at the rear and you'll see what i mean.

I need something that works in the wet and dry. I dont have enough room to keep slicks and wets so need a universal tyre.....any ideas?

Some people seem to think that a 235/45-r13 tyre by Kumho would fit a 10" rim

122 a tyre from camskill but they come in 4 different compounds.

Cheers matey.

I'll have a look on the net and see what i can find. The biggest tyres i can find are Khumo Ecsta V70A......they come in all compounds.....10 inch is 254 mm. The biggest Khumo do for R13 is 235mm.....is the 19mm too much a difference to make it a viable option?

It will fit but cant say how well it would work, I think the drift boys go for bigger stretchs than that on 10j wheels.

Khumo say 7.5 to 9inch with recommended 8.0 - their slicks will fit nicely (but obviously not even slightly good in the wet)
