Default 225/45/15 Hankook RS3 source

FYI

TR is not the only source for RS3's

Hankook Motorsports dealers can get them too.

There is a thread on m.net regarding this size RS3 is getting difficult to find. Anyone seeing this, or is it just tr that's out of them?

Discounttiredirect.com is always good. They didn't have my 225 RS3's in stock though. It's a hot tire right now....it even has phlames in the tread.

I bought my RS3's from Treadzone and while the tires were slightly more, the shipping was slightly less than TR... ended up being nearly a wash and TZ had them in stock as you said.

With only a couple options in 225/45/15 and the RS3's selling out you'd think another company might jump in the game. I'd love for Nitto to do the Neo Gen in that size for a cheap option.

Here's a couple pics of the height difference between 205/50-15s and 225/50-15s... it's fairly major.



You can see clearly how much the car leans with 225/50 on one side and 205/50 on the other. Clearance was super tight between the tire and front bumper as well with the 225/50s.
