List of Remaining 40-Series & 35-Series Tires For 17" & 18" Wheels (MKII)

Things are already looking grim for MKII owners with stock wheels, and for those of us running 17" aftermarket rims, matched sets of staggered 40-Series tires (and 35-Series tires for running 18s in the rear) are rapidly dropping off the face of the earth. 45-Series tires all around may eventually become a necessity, but hopefully this will make for a convenient reference point until that time. I did a lot of research when I picked out my last set of tires, and a few options have disappeared even since then, so perhaps it's time to start publicly keeping track of what's left.

I'll try to keep this list updated if tire options disappear (or appear) from here on out. If something on this list needs to be updated in the future and I've failed to catch it, I encourage you to leave a reply. If anybody knows of any other tires with a selection of viable sizes worth adding to the list, please let me know and I'll research it/add it. All of the following info has been double checked as of today (04/03/2019)

IMPORTANT NOTES:
*This list currently only contains 40-Series tires for 17" rims and 35-Series tires for 18" rims.
*As of this edit, I have not checked for 35-Series tires below a 245 width.
*Every tire model in this list has the ever-important 215/40R17 available as a front size.
