The best thing is to call them. They are produced in batches of 50 (10 sets).

The key is when did they hit their reorder point and order another batch.

All the main suppliers are on back order from Good Year. I shopped them all back in October.

I ordered from Speedway Motors for the best price but last I checked in with them they won’t be receiving the shipment of tires from the manufacturer until March at the earliest.

Notice the price at some vendors just went up to $265 each!!!
Could be awhile before new ones are available if we elect not to purchase those available at that price.\
I needed a set of 10 for my early 2A and early GPW but that price is insane!

Speedway still has them at $220 but they’ve now updated their site to say:

“We estimate this item will ship on or before May 10th.” I may have to call them and get an update from what they’ve heard from Goodyear.

Speedway Tire vs Speedway Motors

Just for clarification, Speedway Tires is a company in India that manufactures tires under its own brand name, Speedway, and happens to sell a 6,00-16 NDT with the tread pattern using the Goodyear pitch count These tires are not related to Goodyear Brand and do not say Goodyear on the sides.

Speedway Motors, a distributor based in the USA sells the Licensed Kelsey Tire Products that are manufactured in molds with the original WWII Goodyear MILITARY molds and are made in USA. Speedway motors is a reputable company.

The best way to get the Goodyear's is directly from www.Kelseytire.com Speak to John, Ann, or Mike for the straight scoop.
