Default Good news for 17 inch tire owners!!

I have just found out from my local tire shop that in August or September Goodyear will begin selling their Assurance Tripletread tire in 235/55R17!!! I saw the tire on Tire Rack'* website and called my local shop.....Who said "it'* not made in that size" :( I said I'd seen it on Tire Rack and so they checked and said it is scheduled for Third Quarter release!!! Has Great ratings in other sizes Should be a good road tire.
