Tire rack now has them in 215/245 but the markup is incredible.

You can find 225/255 but you *really* have to search. I'd suggest going to a Firestone branch in person and having them show you the locations of the tires within 100 miles... then have them shipped to you, if you're really desperate.

I am not sure if I said this earlier but because I couldn’t find these, I ended up with A/S3+ and very happy with them.

Just put a set of the new Continental Extreme Contact Sport on the wife's car and love them. The grip in the rain is better than PSS. Ride is very similar to PSS. Cheaper than PSS. Way better than the DW it's replacing.

Tirerack has these tires back in stock for the sizes of 255/35R18, 225/40R18, and 215/40R18. There are expecting more 245/35R18 by nov. THey are also offering a $60 visa gift card on a set of 4 if you by them by the 12th. Just thought I would give everyone a heads up. I will be purchasing a set of four for sure just so I have them when my current set runs out.

That's an interesting comment considering the tests by tirerack show them being significantly worse than the PSS in the wet.

The Indy 500/RE003 is not a great wet steer tyre either. Just keep that in mind before you do anything enthusiastic in the wet.

Is anyone using these with the wider 225\255 setup? Really looking at these given the price point even though I've always loved my MPSS in the past

I run these in 225 up front. Not an issue. I doubt the 255 would be an issue either.

I did 265/35 in the rear with no issues. Not sure it helped any though. Cost wise, stick with the 255.

I am running those sizes and no issues what so ever. Have over 20K on them now and they are still awesome.
