    Just like the title says.
    I'm always tire shopping, just to keep up with prices, and i entered all the info for a Gen IV ACR and no tires came up. I checked all years and nothing. I checked a regular SRT-10 (non ACR) and up popped two or three choices. But nothing for the ACR, not even Comp tires like Hoosier R6's. Does anyone know what the deal is?!

    We have three choices in the OE ACR sizes of 295/30-18 and 345/30-19 and all of them are R-Compound tires.

    Hoosier A7 (Autocross)
    Hoosier R7 (Road Race)
    Toyo R888

    It appears Michelin no longer makes the Sport Cup tires for the ACR's rear tire size :omg:

    I've been checking for the last several months with no luck :brick:

    Perhaps Pirelli will develop the Trofeo R in the ACR's sizes (fingers crossed :fingersx:)

    Does anyone know why Michelin quit making the Sport Cup in the ACR size? How do the Toyo R888s compare to the Sport Cups?
