  • Hankook RS3 supply

    Where did they all go? Back ordered at TireRack and Discount Tires.

    I guess the low price and the fact they are quick means they're sold out. I should have bought two set in the spring rather than one.

    Anybody know where I can find at set of 255/40 R17?

        Wow, look at all the options for your size!

        I'm jealous!!

        I'd be going for the Kumho XS for $652/set. They're probably the next best bang-for-the-buck . (and they're "in stock").

          I'd check with Bramalea Tire guys. Ask for Eric, but Mark and Dave are equally good. They seem to be able to get all makes and rather quickly (got my Nitto NT555RII Super Rs in a week). Good prices and excellent service to boot!
          They are on Airport Rd just N of 407. Tel num: 905 793 1881
          Hope this helps. Cheers, Bill PS BTW anything made in Japan is seriously backed up, due to the tsunami disaster and this may last for a while (according to a Toyo rep I met there today. So, if you find some available stock: do not hesitate as things might get worse before they get better...

            Yup, lots of selection, but no Hankooks (even the Z214s are low availability).

            Yeah, I thought about that in the spring. Hankooks are Korean, I'm pretty sure, so I didn't think they would be affected. I think it's just their price performance ratio can't be beat right now. That, and it seems like half the OTA competitors are now running 255/40 R17s RS3s.

              Yeah I think both Hankooks and Kumhos are S Korean, yet I think all brands may be experience shortages due to the Japan's situation (trying to fill the void left by the latter)? I'd expect the prices to go up as well...

                i tried to buy kuhmo's a couple years ago mid summer and they were sold out then - i was told they show up in a container and when they're gone they're gone

                seems to be the downside of korean tire's, they're fast and cheap but if you get a flat or need a pair/set for mid season you may be out of luck cause they're still on a boat somewhere in the pacific
