According to tirerack.com's website, they are showing 7 of the Sumitomo HTR200 195/70R14 tires on hand.

Of course, they will probably be gone before the end of the day. It also says "closeout".

They show plenty of HTR-T4 tires in stock. But I don't know how that one would compare to the HTR-200. I guess someone will have to take a chance and try a set.

Arnold,

Ask the Beckners when you are at the track. They are using something different, plus they are happy with them.

If that doesn't work email me and I will get the answer for you.

Federal tires work better than sumitomo's and the legends cars are running them too.

went to Belle tire last night,,,the web site IS WRONG,,,the Sunny tires have been updated/changed and are now 420 AA UTOG.

but i did look at the GT Champiro tires last night that a independent tire store had in stock,,,and they were 360 AA UTOG...but he had these tires in stock for quite a while...I am going to find out if the NEW stock in the distributors's wherhouse is the same UTOG or if they too have been UPDATED/changed to a higher/bigger UTOG number.

also, the sumitomos have 3 big gooves and the chapiros have 4 ( more grooves = less tread)
