Topic: Tire Sources
Once again we find ourselves wanting to buy new Hankook R-S4s for the upcoming spring race at CMP only to find that Tire Rack is out of stock on the 225/45/15s size that we run. Apparently this is a popular tire and size since it's always out of stock at the beginning of the year. One would think if it's that popular someone in marketing would say "maybe we should build more", but alas that's not the case.
Before it's mentioned, we have tried several other tires Direzzas, Rivals, Azenis, and the RS4s hold up better and last longer in our experience running at CMP. When not at CMP, like at Barber or Road Atlanta, none of those other tires would likely have an issue.
So for those who also run RS4s, where do you buy yours? I have found them elsewhere, and still they are sparse, they are quite a bit more than Tire Rack. We'll need (8) tires to survive 24 hours on the cheese grater otherwise known as CMP, so we need to find tires sooner than later.
