Trying to find 2 tires for my 2013 Mini Cooper S that has Kumho Solus KH17- size 195/55/16.  I like having matching tires.  

I have had a tough time finding anyone that sells this tire.   Finally found one site that indicates that this tire is not available, but it is what is on my car.

Anyone have a source that has this size or time to change to another brand or suggestions?

All tires are discontinued eventually.  Time to find a different Kumho or another brand.

As an example I have Kumho Ecstas on my Jetta.  I can't get those anymore either.

Breaking news, tire selection for 16s is crap, more at 11 cheeky

At least Firestone Indy 500s are available in that size, those are good summer tires.

If you went to 17s or 15s you'd have a much better selection of tires available.

Write Kuhmo. Tell them you have two KH17 and ask them what current Kuhmo model would best pair up to them.
