    Which would you choose?

    Hankook Ventus R-S2 Z212 $110
    Kumho Ecsta MX $124

    I want 245/40/17 and don't want to $pend $180+. With the current size availability of STX capable tires these two look to be the best choices for me.

    When is the cut off?

    Go for the Hankooks or better yet, wait for the new Dunlops to come out. TireRack is saying mid to late April.

    April? Really? (opens new tab to the Rack)

    I assume you called? I have last year's Falken "slicks" on the OZs and nothing to mount on the Weds. That is going to be a tough wait.

    With those 2 choices, my money would go to the 'kooks. Those prices from JR's guy?

    Was a phone call involved in the sourcing of this info, or have I lost my touch?

    my info is from what Luke posted- I don't think he can absolutely guarantee when they will be here, but he's pretty confident

    the scca cutoff is the last day of April

    If you were willing to go to 245/45/17, Tire Rack has the Direzza Z1's in stock at $131 each.

    I know you're chomping at the bit to get those Works on... Its just another option.

    Luke has a Dunlop news thread on nasioc- looks like the new ones are on their way- I think they even have a few sizes in already (not the ones STX guys would want though)
