Default best tyre size for 13 inch rims?

what would be the best tyre combination when using 13 inch wheels? they look really tiny with my current setup is 155/65/13 up front and especially at the back with 165/80/13.

any suggestions would be appreciated. please feel free to post pictures of your current setups (using 13 inch rims).

Usually 13" tires fit best. you COULD try 14" but there might be some 'leakage' ...

do an intro

yup. there's a whole community of vw nuts here. to give you an idea, here's an aerial shot during our attempt at the largest parade of vw cars guinness record held last april. i think there were more than 800 vws in attendance.
