PS4S shortage??

I ordered a set of Michelin PS4S through discount tire online over the weekend as they were running a promo. I got a call today saying while they have the fronts, the rears won't be available for 3 months. I asked why that was and the rep said Michelin told him they estimate the quantity then stop production and start back up. So basically production is not constant therefore the 3 month wait time. Is this true?

Mine were back-ordered when I purchased them a few months ago but I think the wait was a week, not 3 months.

I would contact a local performance shop to see if you can source them faster through their connections.

I tried to order a set of 275/35/19 last week and was told they were on backorder. So I went and purchased some re71s that I canít even use because the corona virus track cancellations.

I'm more concerned about this ps4s shortage than toilet paper situation, even though I can't seem to find both right now.

I just got a set put on yesterday. I couldn't source them on TireRack.com (tirerack only had 255/35/19 ready to ship) but my tire shop was able to get a pair of 255/35/19 and 275/35/19. Placed an order with them in the morning and they had it ready by 3pm same day.

Second set on this setup. I've been on 255/275 for a year now. Zero rub on stock suspension. Perfect for the street, I like the extra comfort and quietness, not to mention the extra grip in the wet. I haven't been to the track so I can't comment there.

Well it's confirmed by tire rack that ps4s is not in production and with everything going on who knows when they'll start. I guess I'll get another set of pilot sports.
