Default RE: 165/R15 Tires

I searched for nearly 4 hrs before I found 2 of them at a tire shop 60 miles away. Good luck on finding a set. 90% of the shops I went to called their warehouses and they couldn't even get them anymore. I bought a set of Kumho(spelling). When calling around ask for the 165/80/15". I had problems with a couple of shops that needed that middle number. Thats what is on the side of my tires.
