Where can I get these BFG tires?
 
I'm shopping for tires for my 34 Plymouth. After much measuring, I've decided on this combo -

BFGoodrich G-Force T/A KDW2 tires (with the flamed tread pattern)
205/50/17 Front
255/55/18 Rear

I can't find a supplier that has both those sizes in stock. I called Costco today, and the kid on the phone said they were available to order. So I go in to renew my membership and order the tires, only to find out they don't have the rear tires at their warehouse, but they did order the front tires. Sam's didn't have either size. No luck at tirerack.com or any other online site I could find.

Anyone know where I can find that specific tire? I need to get these mounted on the Foose Nitrous wheels that I just ordered today ( thanks to Ron at West Coast Wheel Factory for great customer service ) so I can load the car onto my trailer to go to the shop for door alignment soon.

Any referrals would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Coker Tire, Chattanoga, Tn. I think they are on the web cokertire.com. They specialize in all the old stuff (repro) but their quality for daily driving is lacking. We bought some biased, correct, wide white walls for a restored 56 T-bird and could not get them to balance. After a lot of study and measuring, we discovered a big variation in the sidewall thickness. We sent them back and ended up buying wide white radials from another vendor.

Well after no luck finding the tire at a retail place, I called BFGoodrich and they said they haven't made the 255 size in a while, and have no plans to make it for at least 6 months.

I found one new 255 tire on ebay, but can't find a second. So close, yet no good.

Oh well, I'll have to find another tire with a cool tread pattern I like.

It's real easy to find a price quote on that tire, but no one has it in stock ready to ship.

???? you don't know absolute that they DON'T have them till you ask!

takes less than a minute to click on each "contact us" and have them reply to your "junk only" email address

(but hey...I'm a "the glass is half full" (not half empty) guy....easier to hit a small target with one shotgun pellet than a bullet at long distance)
