Step one is to convince the folks at Hoosier that there is sufficient Market to pay for the tools needed. If that doesn't work then we simply don't make the 12s.

So, hypothetically when this tire gets produced, what does one need to do to alignment numbers to actually benefit from a tire that wide? I'd imagine running much closer to 0* camber and virtually no castor either? (standing on a lot of shoulders here, from my lowly 205/50 on a 15x7 status)

It's been standard practice on CSP Miatae running the 275 Hoosier to stand the tire up a bit. But don't take my word for it. Test. Get your own data. This matters. I'm assuming you own a probe type pyrometer.

Just got this from hoosier:

"Thanks for your follow up e-mail. Good news – we had a slight delay and possible cancellation of the project in August, but the green light is back on and I am hoping for a Fall / Winter 2017 release date.

Feel free to write me back in October for an update. I am hoping to have some news in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for your patience awaiting this new tire size."

Does this mean 15x12 is back on?

15x12's were put back into the production queue the day after we got confirmation the tire was a go. No price specs or ETA on the wheel yet.
