Default Tires needed, help!

At 15k, I'm in need of new tires. I wanted to try the Yokohama Parada Spec X's that I've heard about on here, however Tire Rack only has the front tires (255/35/22), not the rears (285/35/22). I had a local Jaguar dealer call around my area (Pittsburgh) without luck.

Anyone have another reliable online tire dealer in the USA, or any suggestions?

I think you need to find a local yoko dealer and have them order them for you. You said you had a Jag dealer call around, but did you call yoko direct?

Curious why you would not stick with the OEM Goodyear? - they are so cheap right now.....

Dont waste the $ (even though alot less) on the F1s. They chatter and skip so bad when parking or turning tight below 40 degrees. Yokos ride waaay better all around well worth the extra money and wait.

I agree... I switched to the Yokos this Spring and have been quite happy with them. I live in MN, so temps factored into my decision. Haven't noticed any skipping with them. Ride, traction, and noise level are all fine, too. Best part is I don't have every gawker telling me I need new tires!

I contacted TireRack directly and they do have the 285's, and are shipping the "Back order" tires today from their Louisiana warehouse. PHEW! Makes me nervous though for when I need new ones in the future, hopefully the new Fisker's demand the same size tires to keep them available...

I'm in the SF Bay Area and I just put new tires on. I got 24K on the originals and I drive the car pretty hard.

Yes. I get that all the time from customers saying people tell them they need tires. Far southern owners just dont get to enjoy the lovely skipping and jumping of a cold Karma...
