Right now Tire Rack is out of Dunlop Direzza Star Specs in 205/50-15. I'm searching around for some extras for our ChumpCar endurance racing effort. I know this is a long shot because Subies just don't use these itty-bitty little tires any more, but I thought I'd check in case someone has a couple they want to part with.

Thanks,

Not really a common Subie size (especially for those who autox and are more likely to use them, most of us run 225/45-17's). I checked the websites of a few of the other tire suppliers I'm familiar with, and every one of them was sold out. I know a lot of people have been having trouble getting Japanese tires in the last few months, and my guess is that this is just a case of that. It's even been so bad that the last FastTrack rushed through an emergency spec tire change for Spec Miata.

Well, it goes further to say that 205/50/15 is about 1.9" smaller in diameter than the past decade's "small" (non-Outback/Forester/Tribeca) stock size. :wha:
