I'm after some semi decent 14s for my Gazelle.
Tyres on it are oooold and hard.
Not much available that I've seen though.
Any tips?
185/70 front and 195/70 rear.

There's plenty for sale brand new on eBay in all states.....get 'em from around $50 per tire and up....

If you can accept 60 series, you can even get a top of the line Falken Azenis in 195/60 14....worth checking around?

Yeah i saw the Falkens, unfortunately i don't want to go down in profile (since I barely get out of the driveway already and i'm too vain to have smaller profile with higher suspension height haha!)
Getting cheapo 14s seems easy enough and if all else fails I'll probably just get Winrun R380 since they are both cheap and available in the sizes I want (like $65ea delivered and fitted).
No doubt they'd be better than the tyres I have now which are both cheap and very old.
But if i could get something better....well that'd be nice!
Seems there are lots of eco tyres in those sizes, although they aren't particularly cheap and I imagine low rolling resistance tyres aren't too flash for grip either.

Shame you don't want 185 60 or 65 14. Easy to get too
