Default 13" wheels

Hello and my best wishes for a Happy New Year!
I have found a nice set of 13" wheels for my Roadster project, but prior buying them i would like to have some opinions or experience regarding whether that size is compatible with the Roadster suspension. I am not sure but i suspect that the rear upright will have clearance prolems with a 13" rim.
Thanks for any replies!

15 inch minimum unfortunately, my guess is 13's would handle better though so its a bit of a bugger.

Thanks mate, that's a real pity!
You can easily find some cheap used slicks in 13"..

14" pressed steel wheels can also fit, but the clearance is in the range of 3-5 mm between the rim and the long bottom bolt of the rear upright.
