For my 1986 GL wagon, 1.8, 5-spd. 4WD wagon.

I know the tire I'm going to get, I just need to know the best size. I want to stay stock.

I have the white spoked rims.

This is my only vehicle, I drive it daily. Short drives arpund town, long drives on the interstate.

I live in very rainy SW Washington.

The tire I'm going to be buying is the Michelin Weatherwise II. I've had them before, loved them. Super long-lasting. 80K mile warranty.

Here are the sizes available for my car:

185/70 SR13

185/70 HR 13

175/70 SR13

The specs:

Speed rating T

Treadwear Grade 740

Traction grade A

Temperature grade B

Tread depth 10/32

I'm wanting to find out the pros & cons of the various sizes they come in for my car.

Thanks in advance.

Don't need to know anymore, I ordered 4 (they weren't in stock at the store). The sale price & extra benefits ended today at store closing time. Too good to pass up.
