Yes! (just about) :)

Have them on my car, 205 tyres, they hit the mudflaps a bit on the front at full lock but otherwise no problems - not sure about if the car has been lowered though

Cheers
Danny

Hi,
I recommend Vredestein Sprint Classic or Dunlop Sport Classic for size 205/60 R13. But this size is for 7x13 rims. For 7.5x13 is original tyre size 235/60 R13, if I'm right.

+1 for Vredestein Sprint Classic. Great roadholding though admittedly more costly than the Nankangs which certainly aren't a bad tyre
