Yeah, not much in matched 215/235/40 sets these days; pretty shocking how they're slowly disappearing under our noses. There's also the Falken Azenis RT615K Plus for now. Hopefully Yoke has a medium to high performance replacement in the works as they did w/ the S. Drive which replaced the ES-100 before it.

But honestly, smaller diameter (under 18), wide tires w/ low aspect ratios are not profit making ventures for tire companies, that's why they're being dropped like hot rocks.

Looks like pressing away the front spring perch nib to make way for 215/45-17 and then using 235/45-17 in the rear is getting to be more of a viable solution. Those two 45 series sizes have close to 100 matched sets.
