Michelin PSS 305/25/20 discontinued?

Does anyone know? Can't find it on Michelin's website anymore.

It looks like they may not have actually done any in that size, at least for North America. Discontinued items usually show up in my listings but are marked discontinued. 305/25R20 PSS does not show up at all for me. It may have been something Michelin planned on building, then postponed or decided not to do.

Has anyone actually gotten any of these? Pics or it didn't happen

Thanks Ben for your info. Not sure if anyone has a pair. When I started looking into tires a few months back it was listed on Michelin's website. Now that I'm ready to buy, they're gone

Is that confirmed information? If so, it would seem to support why I saw that size a few months back and not now. Perhaps the plan was to build them, but they still have a big stock of PS2's in inventory

If they do build the 305's at some point, I may run a pair of 295/25's and hope the 305's are available when the 295's need replacing.

Are you running 11's out back?

Not sure of timing to phase out PS2, but I read thats their plan. Which is why SS's aren't available in the odd ball sizes yet. Yes, running 11's in the rear.

OMG. Those r suppose to be my next tires. I need 305's!! I am 11.5 in the back! 295 will be stretched for sure which i hate. I don like PS2's. Hankook's were a desperate buy since I did not find any other tires at the time. Have u guys looked at bridge stone s001's?

No one makes 315/25's anymore in 20's. Trust me. I did enough research. Toyo's made T1R's but they r discontinued. Only route is 325. Which might rub. Hankook's r little stretched right now. PSS run wider than Hankook's so 305 PSS would be perfect.

I too am hopeful of them releasing a PSS soon. $470 each for PS2s is a real stinger.
