What tires for narrow rims on pre-lit narrow body

I have just got my 30 year old pre-lit back on the road after 13 years in garage. I need new tires (still on originals), but all I can find for my 13" wheels are track tires or trailer tires.. Can anybody recommend tires to fit

Wheels: 13" x 5,5 GB Minilite copies

Current tires: 185/70 r13 (probably too wide for rims)

Use: Road (not track)

Constraints: original wings are not wide; I don't want to replace wheels; i'd rather not lower car, as my Jenvey sump pan fitted to 1700 xflow is already lower to ground than I'd like.

I had 185s on 5.5 rims and they fit well, would have fitted on 6s nicely too. Used Continental EcoContact 3s in exactly the same size as you mention and they were great.
