Tirerack says they have 5 left in this size as a closeout. I'm waiting for the 9x16s coming out of England in the spring of 2012 but would consider buying these now and sticking them in a cool, dark room.

Any ideas on if we could find out from Kumho if they are discontinuing the size?

Want these for my 73 with SC flares.

Quick edit here, called Kumho USA and talked with a nice CS rep for a half hour. She shows (but can't confirm anything really) that they are out of stock and won't have stock for another 5 months. She actually has an order for 8 tires in this size from Tirerack that she can't fill. Kumho USA is sold out of this size.

We talked about tire sizes for older cars and let her know about 245s and these 265s. She recommended I call Rick Brennan, VP Marketing, later next week (Marketing is off on a retreat) and let him know about the need for this tire size.

Will call him later next week.
