Incorrect about the availability of Metric tires. Coker Tire took over production of the Michelin TRX radials in all sizes....but they are incredibly expensive (over $600 EACH for the 225-55-390) and at least 30 years behind in tire technology. Although you can find them it's smarter and cheaper to buy wheels and normal inch-sized tires to fit. If you want a concours car you'd go with the originals.
