Default Hankook

I know it's just my luck, but I'm looking for race tires. I was between Dunlop Star Specs and someone had recommended Hankook RS-3's, which seem to be a good bang for the buck.

I called up Discount Tire Direct and they said the tire is nationally back-ordered and they have no idea when Hankook will be making them again. So I said screw it, I'll call up Hankook directly and just ask if they are going to be making any. Afterall, Hankook's site says
Quote:
"If you have any question on product warranty, please first contact your nearest Hankook Tire Dealer. For dealer information, or if your question has not been handled to your satisfaction, contact the Hankook Tire Technical Department."
The woman that picked up needed to know where I was from (what Dealer I was) and I just told her that I'm a customer from CT looking for the availability of a specific tire (maybe they are discontinued, maybe they have a new series coming out, etc.?). She said, "You're going to have to call back Discount Tire Direct and have them call us" and I told them I did and they didn't know and asked her if she could please check the availability. She said she couldn't do that and I said, "So then I'll permanently write off Hankook as a tire I'll ever use if that's the case".

She said "Ok".

End of conversation. WTF? Are you KIDDING me?!

haha, jeez. you're a collector! I was going with some 255/40/17

I had picked up a set of the Star Specs yesterday, but good to know you have those too.

Actually, do you happen to have a fender roller? I'd be interested in that to roll my rears at least. If so, shoot me a pm. I could probably rent Jeff's but was seeing if I could find anything a bit closer to home first.
