Call Doug Scott out in L.A. He buys a lot of those. He told me one time but I can't remember.

Regarding the Kumhos,I was also told that they were on "EIO" status...??
Not being too familier with tire inventory jargon I asked exactly what that is.....his reply "Existing Inventory Only"... once that is gone NO more.

Also regarding the Hankooks I was told that they too will be getting rid of the WW's within the next 6 months.....however the same tire in BW will still be available...
I was told by Americas Tire that they are one of the top 5 selling tires for them ??
I just dont understand WHY these companys get rid of something that sells very well.....
