Re: How did I miss these???

Tires got more pricey because of all the new queer rim diameters. So much more tooling/set-up time or more factory space and variation in stock to produce/inventory. It costs more to make and stock to sell 180 variations than 40. Just pulled these numbers from my head. But probably a worse ratio. Figure all the profiles in the normal sizes offered forever vs about twice as many. Figure 13" and 14" didn't offer a lot of sizes. It seems once the hole in the middle got bigger all tire prices about doubled or more.
