Hankook makes the H714 here. Tread even looks the same. I got 4 for $145 last week from discount.
so i guess the big question is are these tires still being made???i just called discount here and they said they could get 175/75's ww all day...

quote from their site
" Star King is a perfect product from the kitchen of Hankook. Made in one of the most modern plants with Hankook and a nice range of sizes."

Jon,



Thanks for the question.



Sorry, the 175 width is the narrowest available in a 14” wheel. I don’t expect Hankook to manufacture anything smaller in the near future. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns.



Sincerely,



Nicholas Tufo :(
