2012 Tire availability update?

Hi,
Just wondering if the Discount Tire rep here could post an updated SSR tire availability chart like the one that was posted a few years ago here: https://www.ssrfanatic.com/forum/f52/ssr-tires-30027/

It would be nice to see what new/current offerings are available for our unique needs.

Also, I am leaning towards the General Grabber UHP, anyone have long term feedback on that particular brand? I was VERY happy with my current Firestone Wide Ovals until I destroyed a front. The rears are wearing a little more so in the middle so I am trying to find a suitable replacement set. I found the Wide Oval fronts at a good price and still looking for the rears but thought the Grabber might be a good sub. Any inputs??

Good luck with the Grabbers on the '03 Mike. No so much with the same tire on the '05 (two out of four on a new set worked their way out of round in just a couple hundred miles). Replaced the entire set with Nitto Invo.

In short, love the tread pattern on the Grabber, and if you get a good set you'll be happy. Have about 5000 miles on the Invos and am very pleased with them. If you read the tire threads here you'll find the other members are happy with this tire as well.

I have Toyo Proxes ST11 on my 05.. 25,000 miles and not showing any wear. Excellent in heavy rains and plain wet roads.

I will put them on again when the need arises.

I'll work on an update this week. At a quick glance, the Goodyear RS-A is still the only stock sized option we show in our system. It looks like there's a couple new options in the 275/315 sizes like the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and Continental Extreme Contact DWS.

Hi Mike S. What size TOYO Proxes ST11 are you running on fronts and rears? 25K and still performinf on wet roads sounds like they're worth a look see. Thanks and cruise safely. Juneau Ron
