    are you sure it's a 165/45R-15 you're looking for, 'cause I just checked all 4 of my wholesalers, and no such tire size came up, and they cover all the majors and even most niche mfgs. (vred., toyo, falk., etc.)

    None of the good sizes are available here in the US but those are, the bug guys use em all the time. Try finding 215 35 16 for a real challenge
