I'm no expert in 190SL, but I looked into a book and it says that _for Germany_ the original tyres were 6.40-13 Sport (aka 6.40 S-13) with 5 K x 13 rims.
I have also read that at the end 2002 German tyremaker Continental bgan to newly produce whitewall tyres for the 190SL (and some other MBs), Continental states them as 6.40 / 7.00 SR 13
Also somewhere 6.40/7.00 R 13 87S are mentioned.
And don't 185/80/13 fit??

I wonder what brought that on... Can't be much of a market. Even at hundreds of euro each. Prestige?
