Is it just me or is everything in 225-70-15 on backorder

So I needed some new tires and decided on the Yokohama geolander a/t-s. Everything from them was on national back-order with no production date specified and the only tire that would fit my truck was a 30x9.5x15. Got the tire last Friday and honestly they're awesome, great on dry and wet pavement and i have no doubt they'll do great in the snow. My problem is that because its a bigger tire my little 4 banger is a dog going up hill (and living in the seattle area, hills are a daily occurrence)

So i went back to where i bought the tires to see if i couldn't get something in my stock size. Everything they looked at was on back order with the exception of the Continental ContiCrossContact LX, and I'd have to pay an extra 150$ + tax to get an inferior tire ... Oh well looks like i'll be downshifting up hills from now on.

One man's anarchy is another mans revolution. Just depends on what end of the rifle you're looking at.
99 ranger xlt, 2.5l 5spd. Its tiny, slow, has plenty of body mods thanks to the previous Asian owner and I love it.
