Are you aware of any new RFT products that may be coming out in the next 6 months or so that will offer extended wear characteristics?
I'll be switching over to the snows in 6 wks or so and will want them this spring. Thanks.
You're on the right track. The longest wearing run flat tire available in the staggered 18" sport tire sizes bar none is the RE960 A/S Pole Position RFT. I see no information about plans of other companies to release any new tires in these sizes in the next six moths.
