TireRack inventory

How accurate is TireRack's inventory count?
I am looking for Conti ExtremeContact DW (staggered 18") and the rears are back ordered from Continental everywhere, but TireRack is showing stock.

I don't want to order them only to find out later there is no stock and then have the hassle of returning the fronts, or whatever.

Can I trust the TireRack delivery estimate?

Thanks

We have the fronts in stock in all locations. The rears are in stock only in our Delaware warehouse. The web site will show give you the shipping options during checkout, so be sure to selected the "in stock" shipping location which will be Delaware.

OK, great!

Is the low inventory seasonal or are these tires coming to end of life? I don't want to buy tires that I might have a hard time finding replacements for if I have a blowout or damage a tire. Will Conti still be making these for awhile?

This is a current production tire, but frequently sells out due to popularity.

Ok. I will go ahead and order them today, unless you know of any rebates coming up soon

I am in no particular rush, my car is in storage until late March/April

Great, I'll keep an eye out for the order. Please refer to the forum in the previous contact area or customer comments towards the end of the online order form. I don't see any upcoming specials on these, sorry.

The DW is one of the best tires in its category in the rain.

So you must not have had the DW?

Tires were delivered to US warehouse in less the 2 days, with basic UPS shipping!

Went to get them today. Nice looking tires, great price, fast delivery, thumbs up Tire Rack!
