We just got tires for our 83 Westy. As everyone knows who has ever had to buy tires for a Westy it can be nearly impossible to find tires with the reinforced sidewall and correct load rating, especially if you have the stock 14x5.5 steel wheels as we do . Our 83 had car tires on it when we bought it and they were SCARY. I checked out the available options and went with the Continental Vanco 8 195/14 from Michel Tire here in Cincinnati (they had to special order them from Tire Rack) and they're great. 2100 lb load rating and reinforced sidewall. Agressive tread but very quiet and smooth ride. The old beast handles like it's on rails now even in the rain. The lateral stability is especially noticeable on the highway getting passed by Bubba in the big rig doing about 90. We don't get blown all over the road anymore. Best of all they were 71 bucks apiece. The 195 is slightly larger than stock but not enough to notice any difference in the speedo reading, braking, clearance or acceleration. The 185s were backordered until the end of time anyway. The Michelin Agilis was $120 or so even from Wal-mart. So better tires for a little more than half the cost of the Michelins. One tiny caveat-the tread pattern seems to get a bit of gravel stuck in it. We live on a farm with gravel roads so we probably notice it more than most. Great tires for a good price.
