I did some calling to a few LHS's around me and I went to a handful of them too trying to tack them down and I found a guy selling them...hey wants $35 for a set of 4 of them. He was telling me that they stopped manufacture of them around 1997...so they are over a decade old. I bought like 10 sets of each from him, and I got him to cut a deal with me b/c I bought so many of them, he said he couldn't go lower than $30 on a set, so I took more than enough.

If you guys need any, I could sell you them for the same price I paid, $30..and go and get more form him...but if you want a ton, give me a few days to get in contact with him and check if he has that many.

I was going crazy when I found this guy...I was like you have them? They say GOODYEAR on them right? what number is molded into the tire? I had to ask the guy 10 times in the store before her brought me back a box of them...lol...
