Quick update.

Kept checking the UPS tracking number, always no info. and then it disappeared. Called Tire Rack, they said they had an "inventory problem." She transferred me over to sales.

He found the last 2 tires on the East Coast. One in CT and one in GA. They are shipping.

We then talked more about the nature of the size. He said:

Kumho is experiencing significant labor problems.

Tire Rack is showing next shipment of this tire (size) in July 2012.

He says that means it's being discontinued.

He did recommend talking with Kumho about this size and he mentioned 245/45/16s unprompted, as well. Reading between the lines, it sounds like people are asking for these.

How would be find other cars with this size tire? I would think if we got several forums interested, it would help in making sure supply lasts.
