Unhappy Tires for the Esteem

Guys, i would like to upsize the tires on my 2006 Esteem VXI. I have finalised on the size 185-65-R13. Now guys could you suggest me different brands that make tires in this size??? I asked my tire dealer about Bridgestone Grid III's but they ain't available in that size . SO could you guys point out Any other good brand of tires which offer better ride and performance on par with the Bridgestones Grid III's And what would be the estimated price per piece.????

PS- I am running stock tires on 13 inch 5.5J League alloys(period)!

Cheers

Thanks for the response guys.
But how does the Apollo Acelere compare with
1. Bridgetone Potenza G!!!'s
2. Bridgestone Turanza ER-60
3. Michelin XM1



And lastly if i opt for 185-70-R13's, i can source the Bridgestone Potenza Grid !!!'s, will this size touch any part of car when taking turns????. But what about the Turanza's??? Are they an improvement over the Potenza G!!!'s????

why dont you think about switching to 14" rims, there are quite a few beautiful tyres in that size.
