Default Tirerack is out of RS3s STILL.

My local tire magician went on the hunt for me today, and said that he can't find them anywhere in the country. Has anybody found another source that has any in stock? I can't find anything actually available in 225/45 other than Toyo R1Rs at Tirerack and Good-Win for $192 ea ()

Sumbitch.

I'll look into R1Rs at onlinetires.com. I've been happy enough with the set that are on the car now, but nobody seems to actually have them in stock except Tirerack, and I have a hard time paying double the price of RS3s for what is likely an inferior tire. Several places have them listed for $130-140, but they all ahve to special order them at that price, and I need tires before maybe-one-day-in-the-future-when-Bill's-Tire-Shack-in-Boca-Raton-can-get-Toyo-to-ship-them-a-4-year-old-set-of-tires-from-their-warehouse/cave-in-Uzbekistan.

Eh, I'm sure they'll get them back in stock in a few months. They did last year.

If anyone wants I'm willing to sell a brand new set of rs3's for $2500. And seeing how I'm feeling generous I'll give you a free set of 15x9 6uls in silver :P.

In all honesty though I feel your guys pain. I flipped when I saw tirerack ran out. Luckly I snagged some from 949's east coast 6ul supplier.

Try phils tire service (949 east coast supplier) he may have some left.

Dont they run out every February? Because god forbid someone looks at sales records and sees that people buy them up in anticipation for the upcoming race season?

I mean, wasn't it last Feb/March that they were out of stock before and everyone here was all freaked out that they couldn't get them?

I swear this happens every year.

Ordered a set from grouppe-s on the 7th, received an automated conformation for the order and haven't heard a word since. Sent an email for an update a couple days ago with no response. I'm going back to discounttiredirect from now on. I don't mind if there's an issue just let me know! Looks like my first autox will be on all-seasons.
