Where to buy tires? 175/50R13

I just got my mini last week and was looking on the web for new tires since the front ones are bald. My guess is most people aren't running 175/50R13. If that is not the case where do you buy them? If that is the case what are you running? Keep in mind that I have a vtec engine, so more tire the better as long as it will fit.

Wow, bald front tires on a VTEC mini, go figure .

For tires, I would contact the following:
www.MiniMania.com (classic mini specialists) - they have that size on their site.
www.heritagegarage.com (classic mini specialists)
www.gbcarparts.com (classic mini specialists) - they have that size on their site.
www.tirerack.com (tire/wheel specialists, but perhaps not mini knowledgable)

Others here will surely post their favorite sites.

Cheers,
Jeff
