Longyear order cancelled - Michelin XAS 165 x13s- "are currently unavailable with no date for new production, we have had to cancel your order."

For those who are interested ....can we make some noize to Michelin that there's still a market?

I will look for some way to communicate to Michelin and will pass it along when found.

 I'll start with Coker, today.  Updates to follow.

I would recommend a new set of Pirelli CN36 tires.

Wow. That’s bad!

 

And your order was placed with Longstone Tyre?

 

I still see the 165’s on eBay (which tends to be Coker themselves and Summit Racing, which simply has Coker drop ship them), so there must be a few floating around.

 

By the by, all of the Michelin Classic tires (such as the XAS) are batch-produced depending on demand, and have been since they were moved from Michelin’s standard production to the Michelin Classic division (formerly known as Michelin Passion). A few years ago, when I questioned why a new set I purchased was two years old (by the date code), Coker’s reply was “That was the last batch run”.

 

I certainly don’t view this as the end of the 165HR13 XAS; it’s simply the trough between runs.

 

Regards,
