I'm assuming this change will kill off the current lineup of 140 and 180 tw tires. Does anyone have insider info when these brands will start "re-numbering" their tires?
Not insider info, Hankook have renumbered the RS-3 to 200. Bridgestone have renumbered the RE-11 to 200. Not to be confused with the Bridgestone RE-11A which is new and 200. The A doesn't work nearly so well for us, I just gave some away because I dislike them so much.
There's also the usual suspects in the BFG Rival and Dunlop ZII which are 200, which coincidentally appeared as the rules were published. The ZII is now discontinued in favor of the ZII * Spec, which won't arrive till autumn.
