Taking Orders for GoodYear 31x12x15 & 33x12x15 slicks
« on: November 19, 2014, 12:40:38 PM »
In 2012 GoodYear put some tires on an "inactive" list with no production date. When I found out that GY would make another batch of these light weight, 22.6 lb ea, 31x12x15 D2585, IF we gave them an order for at least 150 tires. So with some help I pre-sold 180 tires and gave the order to GoodYear at the 2013 WinterNationals, and we received them in Aug-Sept. I thought that would hold us for 2-3 years, BUT no we are out of inventory, and I'm getting many calls for another order. At the World Finals, GoodYear did say they have a window in their 2015 production schedule that they could make another 150 tires. So if any of you want in on these tires, Please Email, call me, 805-444-4489, jchansen60@gmail with how many tires you might need for the next two years.
I'm also getting calls for another "inactive" tire D1288, 33x12x15, so I'm working on another 150 tire order for these.

2014 price for D2585 is $362, plus shipping, 2015 pricing may [?] go up 3-5%
As we get closer to shipping I will, like the 2013 order, figure some shipping options, like combining orders to ship on pallets to a racer near by that has access to a fork-lift, pick-up tires at a race that one of the GoodYear distributors will attend, or pick-up at a distributor, the advantage is a pick-up at a race or distributor is they will mount and balance them for you..
Any idea on how many you might be interested in ?

Jon, I have been running the 33 x 14.5 on my car and this was one of the discontinued tires is there anything new out there in the size I have been running?

Paul, I show a 33x14.5x15 tire in the 2014 GoodYear catalog, I can call GY to confirm that tire is still available. How many do you want ?
If not, options in GoodYear are; 32x14.5x15, can you handle abit more finish line RPM and 33x15x15 or abit more bite at the start ?
If you want, I can post on this site what I find out, or you can call me, Monday.

Jon I just need a pair and would prefer to stay with the 33" height  and your right they show the D2070 D6 compound and am pretty sure that is the tire I run..... Slightly confused as I ended up running my tires longer than I normally do since last year when tried to find it, it wasn't available??
