National Backorder

I went in to purchase General Grabber At2s (33x12.5x15)for the summer til i save enough for other tires and they were back ordered. The guy called them and found out they are on national back order, which sucks cuz i left the shop with no tires. anybody know anything about this or when they will be available again?
I did see for the first time (there is only 1 lifted ranger near me) a body lifted black step side ranger today too but the guy didn't wave back lol he was old. A$$

Must be a CA thing. I know all the race teams are getting ready to race or are out racing so that's probably why we have no BFG.

haha ill keep you guys posted. i received a confirmation and said i should hear from them within 24 hours. I tried finding used tires but they were dry rotted on the bead so F that. and the At2s are affordable for me cuz im in college and i may switch it up in the summer to some mud terrains but thats a while from now haha.

UPDATE:
They responded to my email and they talked about the HTs. here is what they said

Thank you for your interest in the General Grabber HTS. Unfortunately, the popularity of this tire line has surpassed expectations, and most fitments are on back order. With so many orders in queue, it will take several months before for production is able to fulfill demand, and allow dealers to stock this tire line.

LAME
