13.5" IMO is just too wide for an 8" rim. I'd go for the 10.5 personally. I like to keep the tire width within 4" of the rim width, so 12.5" is the MAXIMUM I'd reccomend running on an 8" wide rim.

Yeah, I'd stop playing around with that. It looks expensive.

GG is right, if you want the Interco tires then go with the 10.5"... Your 4 banger will thank you for the decreased weight too...
