    I need 2 new 275 40 17's or 285's but can't find them anywhere, I bought a new set of fronts last year but can't seem to find the TT (traditional thread) anywhere now.

    It may have been discontinued. I believe the traditional tread was just an interim measure while they phased in the new flame style tread pattern.

    And that you find now would probably have to be leftovers.

    Yea they were discontinued, I was hoping someone might have 2 leftovers somewhere. They are excellent tires IMO.

    i looked on summits site and cant find 275/40/17's anymore. that really sucks if they discontinued those tires. they are by far the best tires ive ever had. and the new style they have on bfgoodrich's site look like ricer tires.

    yea he's looking at the 275 and nothing, he's saying 2 weeks for 285's but I'm asking him to verify b/c I called BFG and they said they were on national backorder with no date yet. I love these tires, sucks if they discontinue them!

    Tirerack, Discount, Mavis...BFG direct...nobody has them in stock

    I've had my set since 02...lol...my car doesn't go out much either, but last year I hit a piece of metal and it punctured my rear tire which I had 285's in the rear...so I bought 2 new 275's and put the fronts in the rear and new ones up front figuring I'll get new 275's or 285's this year but now I can't find any and they are pretty beat since I might have abused them a little bit extra knowing I was going to change them. haha

    I'm kinda partial to the newer ones. Think the tread design just looks wicked. And granted no, its nothing compared to an LS1, but in my RX8 i could launch at 7k on the new style ones and cut 1.70 to 1.80 60'ft times. Made a believer out of me.

    mine wore fine on the RX8. I'd run them for about 12k miles before my car got total'd. still had miles left in them, least 5k prolly. I did have it realligned at 7k miles when i rotated them.

    Since I had different sizes front & rear I never rotated mine but they wore almost even. These tires were awesome, they hooked up great on dry days, low noise and nice ride. I'm hoping someone has 2 in stock somewhere so I can at least have a new set until I need all 4.

    from the look of the picture (narrowness), I'd say yes the 315's look awesome.

    You can get a set of four P275 40 ZR17 BF Goodrich G-Force KD tires on Ebay for $550.00 plus shipping. The vendor sell them as a pair (left and right tire) for $275.00 plus shipping. I bought a two sets of four tires because I thought they were a good price. Obviously, they're discontinued tires. In case you were wondering the manufacture date on the tires were in the 2007 time frame.

    I saw the KD's but those are a little more aggressive then what I needed, might be my only choice to match up the sidewall though if I can't find the KDW's.
