Question P295/50R16 Tires

Just purchased a Cobra with P295/50R16 BF Goodrich rear tires that are over 10 years old. I have visited 3 tire companies and they cannot find a vender who makes this size tire. Any recommendations?

I had to go all the way and get new wheels and tires. Went up to 17".
I just hope they keep selling 17" tires the way the market is going. I don't think it would look good with 22"s!

Bummer and thank you for your feedback Larry! Do you know when they discontinued this size tire?

I have dealt with this Co. for years, Exc. people there that know the product's. I brought my MT St tires from them. The first 3 tires I wouldn't trust but the Hankook, MT, Cooper, I would. Hope this helps, Cheers Tom. https://www.performanceplustire.com/...50-15:ty:Tire/ Sorry I thought you meant 15" Let me ck. that co. for 16"

The only one I came across in current production is from Nankang.
But not sold in the US (no 16" listed on their US site).

You have to get them from the UK or AU.

You won't find that size in 16" you're going to have to switch to either 15" or 17"

They sell tires close to those sizes in 16, but nothing you want to go with IMO. Don't go 15 unless you really want the look because the good tires are real hard to get in 15". I went with 17" in the same wheel with MT Street comps and love them.
