185/55/13 for me  :D  They loose a bit of the balloon look too.
I usually just ebay them or go to our local National place.

Im running 175/60-13. Keeps the same rolling radius as the 195/55-13s, but is a more available and reasonably priced tyre size. Although still quite a rare tyre.

185/55-13 is what the Metro runs on I beleive. Quite an easy tyre size to source.

185/60 are what i used to use on the standard wheels.

Plenty of choice in that size. A bit on the 'balloon' side though.
