Until today the dream ... ok maybe not "the dream"... of mounting R: 235 13's and F: 215 13's is seriously on hold.

I called the tirerack about a month ago to ask about v700 235/45/13 and they said they were on back order - estimated date of shipment end of feb or march.

Today I called, and the tirerack rep said the 235 has been discontinued, and they've also taken the v700 215/50/13 off their website.

... I did check the kumho website, and specs were still present for the 235 and the 215's...

At somepoint one of the autox guru's said there may be other wide 13's coming down the line - any more news on this?

I've heard elsewhere that the entire Victoracer V700 line has been discontinued. I could be wrong - that's just what I've heard. Wouldn't surprise me, though - they've been around forever and haven't changed a bit, which makes them a great affordable R-compound tire. But today nearly everybody, including Kumho themselves, has a better tire. The technology has just moved on.
