Continental Tire Bummer

Discount Tire won't mount a continental 19.5 in. tire and I was so shocked at hearing that that I forgot to ask availability. NTB says 60 days for tire. Davis Chevrolet found 1 ONE, Uno, in Florida and can have it here in 3 or 4 days. Thats great, But Houston, and no continental tire available? What gives if I blow 2 tires on the road? This tire must be supremly popular or just the opposite. I'm glad I decided to get a spare before I traveled anywhere as some previous posts made reference to just letting the called upon service to provide the tire. Heck, I may need to carry 2 spares, one loose and 1 on a rim. Now thats some x-tra unplanned on weight! How many of you have run into this with your continental HSR 225 70R 19.5 load range G tires? When I was reviewing different chassis prior to purchas I felt I had completed my homework with what appeared to be a chassis and motor with excellent reviews F53 chassis and 3v 6.8l motor. Didn't think tires would be that big of a deal. OR perhaps I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill and should just be thankful that within these forums I was prompted to act sooner than later. Oh well, at least it's just 3 or 4 days and Davis will mount the tire without talking about 1/2 rims yada yada.

Have you tried the Continental Dealer Locator on their web site?
Continental USA Car / Light Truck / SUV -

It may be that your size is not widely used, so not stocked locally. Continental is a big commercial tire supplier, but 19.5" isn't widely used in that world. The 22.5" Continentals I use seem to be readily available, but I am using a widely used size (11R22.5).
