Hey Aaron, just a general question. As far as deleting tires from production. I understand that they would want to sell X amount, and if thier projected sales fall below that. Then they don't want to carry it. But, from the other side. If a mold, and R&D cost X amount. And the tire has already sold enough to cover that cost. Who does it hurt for them to keep producing a tire. Let's say an IFMAR Stud for a truck. Wouldn't selling 100 sets a year be better than none? It would just be more profit going into the same mold, right?

You've only got the resources (time being the main one) to produce X amount of tires in a given period of time. If you can produce some tires that aren't necessarily selling very well, or you can produce a different kind of tire that sells faster than you can make them, which would you choose to make?
