New Rear Tire needed

So,

I put on a set of Avon Storm II's about 5 months ago. Unfortunately, the rear has developed a very small pin hole leak. Not big enough to ream out and plug. I am able to do a days riding before I need to refill the rear.

I have not been able to locate another rear Storm II. Anyone have any suggestions as to what I could run with the Storm II front tire? These tires are almost new and I'd hate to replace both.

Avon replaced the storm 2 with the 3DXM.
