You could be running either 13" or 14" rims on your 65. Make sure you know which. I'm running 195/75R14's on my 65 6-Cyl.

The size I'm running (they're radials) is pretty close to the original 14" bias ply tire size. I'm not 100% sure about 13" but that size you posted earlier sounds about right. Maybe someone can help on this? I'd just be careful not to get something too wide. Here's a link to a place that offers some 13" choices. A phone call there might help you get exactly what you want.

Good luck!

Wade - having real difficulty finding the P185/80R13 tires...
I used your link and cross referenced their P195/75R13 - they haven't returned my phone call, so in the mean time what do you think?

I would really like to find the P185/80R13 - so if you have a reference for this let me know that also...

Sams Club lists 3 choices in 185/80R13 - 3 really oddball brands. What's a Greenball Transmaster??? I think the originals were 6.50x13 which is smaller than a 185R13; closer to a 175R13.

Many of the smaller 13" are NLA. They stopped making the 165R13 for one of my cars about 20 years ago it seems. I had to go to a 185/70R13 which is the same OD. A 195/70 would be similar in OD to an original 6.50.

Hello,
Sorry to dredge up an old post, but wondering if you found the tires you need. I too need the 185-80-13 tires for my '65, but I'm having a heckuva time. Sams lists 3, but they're trailer tires...
Thanks.
