Just passing on the latest release info of the hankooks. Looks like I need to be nice to my Toyo's for a while!
David,

I thought I answered your email but it looks like I may not have.

It looks as though the 215/40/16 will be available late this year or early next year. We have 5 more sizes due in early November (205/60/13, 205/55/14, 225/50/15, 225/50/16, 275/40/17)

I will definitely hold your contact information and let you know as soon as I have an update on the size you are looking for.

Keep us posted on the series that you are running if you can, it sounds interesting.

What's the Treadwear??
Are these STS, or R-Compound tires?

R-Comp.... treadwear 140
140? I'm gonna guess it's '40' and in line with the others in its class...........otherwise it just became the ultimate STS cheater tire

Well in the 16's you only have a 205/55/16, everything else is to big, unless you go with Hoosiers. The only reason I went with 16" wheels was in anticipation of the Hankooks so at some point I could be back at the 215. But if I had planned on never running the hankooks I would have stayed with a 17" wheel and gone with Murphs 205/40/17.

But I'm pretty sure my tires should last till the 215's come out.

Sorry... yes Murph is right... they're supposed to be 40... dunno why I added the 1.


Bottom line... no way are they STS legal.

I'm liking the 215/40/16's for gearing and clearance....
Too bad i can't run R's for a few more years...

Very cool, that's the right size for VWs
I'd like to keep posted on what Hankook comes up with. Maybe it would be a legit Kumho competitor?

I think an '87 could be a very serious HS contender on either rubber

With your monster truck tires David I wonder if Murph's 17's are actually the same size or smaller than yours
