I've emailed both giti and GT Radial asking about this tire and when/if the SX2 RS will be available in 17" sizes. No response.



Called a local dealer here and he says he can't get them right now (sounded like this region).
Can use 245-45?

Try DMing @GTRadialusa on IG, they are pretty responsive there.

Mike Meeiem at GT Radial responded to my email request for a source on 245/40-r17 SX2s and if the RS would be avail in 17" sizes soon. He suggested Simpletire and asked where I was for a suggestion of local dealers, and said the SX2 RS 17" sizes should be available early next year.

Anyone know how the RS will stack up against the old SX2? More grip but at the cost of higher wear rate?

Does anyone know if the SX2 will still be available in 2021, or is discontinued in favor of SX2 RS?
