    Looking to see if anyone knows if any of the tire manufacturers are planning to offer a grippy 225-45-15 or 225-50-15 for 2016. Right now what I've seen is the Rival S, and Toyo R1R. Would really like a RE71R in this size.

    What's weird is that I can pull up several sizes for the re71 at work, but there is no national stock of any of them. Supposedly, I can get ahold of a certain person and have a set made, although I'm not sure as I'd have to buy two, just in case...

    Maxxis has a new tire coming out and it is in 205/50/15 and 245/40/15 If I recall.

    The website shows 9/32 on all sizes except for one, check your sources. I don't see anything that says it's a drift tire.

    Whoops, went back and checked and I appears I misread what Justin Tilus posted. The 6/32" depth issue only applied to a single tire, 295/40-18, a tire which was designed specifically for sponsored drifters. It's not a typo. The rest of the line is expected to meet availability requirements.

    It's supposed to be good for endurance racing. Perhaps it will turn out to have the grip of RE-71R and Rival S but with the heat tolerance needed for the track?
