Lane: H or V speed rating?

I spoke with Stephanie at Apollo-Vredestein USA in Atlanta this morning. They have plenty of 195/60R15 in worldwide inventory. The problem is, we Spyder folks NEED 185/65R15 for the front unless we have wider wheels, which we don't. And there aren't any 185/65 or 205/60 in inventory anywhere. Quatracs no problem, Sportrac zero.

I spoke to a gentleman at Tirerack.com, he's going to talk to a purchasing agent about ordering some 185/65 in V speed rating for Chris, Lenny, and I. I'm going for 205/60VR15 for the rear as they fit the revised Vintage clamshell. I believe Lenny and Chris will get 195/60 rear tires.

Wish me luck, because I believe that the factory needs to make them first.

I'd be willing to bet that if the tires become available, the buyers will come, just like Field of Dreams. Maybe the Rack will carry them from now on.......
