No more Metzeler ME880 Reinforced for K12LT

Can't find the correct set of Reinforced 120/70B/17 and 160/70B/17 for the LT.

What are the alternatives or where to buy them?
I don't need tires right now, but I think I'll buy a set just be safe.

The ME888 is a great tire IMHO. They are readily available. They last even longer than the 880. I got 12K on my first set.

Any 880 rear 160/70 17 79V Reinf that you find will be several years old. They quit making them for the LT a few years ago. There are good alternatives out there. Such as 888, Bridgestone, Avon, Shinko,
