So, based on your results I went to both Coker and Summit and:

Coker: would be back-ordered @ $114 per tire but they've now apparently added shipping to the tune of $191 (for 6 tires). Total cost shipped; $875.91 (for 6 tires). ($583.93 for 4)

Summit: back-ordered as well @ $147.99 per tire with $9.99 shipping (per tire) = $59.94. Total cost shipped to the same address as Coker; $947.88 (for 6 tires).($631.92 for 4) I failed however, to ask them to match Coker's price - doh.

Now, though it appears that Coker would be the obvious choice, I went with Summit for 2 reasons .. 1) I know Summit, already had an account there, and have had good results with them and, 2) you actually GOT yours (from Summit).

So, to everyone else watching this thread I think ORDER SOON if you want these tires .. nobody else in the tire industry knows anything about them being available.

cheers and good luck, Darrin

RedFiveKBS - is there a date code of any type on those tires you got?

Got an e-mail, mine have shipped and are on their way, ETA is Mar.12.18 by end of day, so I will let you all know. I'm getting excited, but I'm not sure why when I'm still trying to finish up another project and my Monza has no driveline so it's a bit pointless installing new tires on it. I think its just knowing that I finally have just about every hard to find part I need to get it on the road again.

Finally got mine mounted, balanced, and on the car. The right rear rubs a bit on the inner wheel well on turns so I need to get into there and clean it up a bit and/or add a shim. The right way is adjusting the panhard bar but I'll take the lazy way for now.

Thanks guys!

Senior, I used one of those polishing cones on my drill and some aluminum wheel polish. They weren't bad to begin with. One of the four was a slightly different shade so it got sanded and painted too.

I sanded the painted parts of the wheel and then taped them off. Taping off the snowflake is a pain. Then a bit of primer and the factory argent silver. Those Pontiac center caps are virtually impossible to find. I have three sets of snowflakes and only one set of caps.

Added a spacer behind the right rear and no more rubbing. The whole rear probably needs to be shifted over a touch but that is for another time.
