    I am trying to order a Rear Cobra Chrome tire for my Cross Roads and all dealers are out of stock. How did that happen?

    Dunlop E4 and Metezler CruiseTec are also hard to find in that size.

    Outta try getting tires for older vehicle like a 87 C-4, none anywhere unless I downsize and no date for return... Covid Crap.

    Maybe it’s because they wear out so fast it’s hard to keep them in the shops. :biggrin:

    Have a riding friend who waited from February to last month for his tire size to be in stock. Rubber is hard to find this year...
