Default Another tire thread

I NEED some 225/45-15's. Tirerack is out of stock on the RS3's with no arrival date. Does anyone else have them? What other options does I has?

Aren't you selling/parting out your car?

There is also a thread about this specifically; and it said where to go.

I'll see if I can find it

Why are you putting such small tires on your Expedition?

I'm loving my Toyo R1R's. I paid $129 a tire locally since they price matched the lowest online price I could find

a little birdie told me that a small qty of RS3s should be in stock shortly, with a bulk of the stock showing up next month. so, how long can it wait?

Where did you find them for $129? I need to get in on some price matching.

Check with Hankooks racing distributors in this link. Bound to be someone with RS3's. Frisby, Appalachian or the like. Frisby lists them at $115 right on the front page. Don't know if they are in stock or not though. You'll have to make that call.

I bought from this place on Cspence's recommendation, I think they were around $135 shipped.
