Spoke to Nissan this week and it looks like there are no new tyres in the UK for the MY11. Although I am a few thousand miles away from replacements it's a daunting prospect. Anyone tried to replace/order yet?

I can't remember the terminology, but Nissan have a process for allocating rubber in cases of real need.

Am I right in thinking Bridgestone have a production problem in Japan?

Not sure re Bridgestone. Let's hope Nissan can cover new tyres then eh!

Surely MY11 cars are running the new dunlops which should not be affected by issues in Japan..???

I was told you can easily run the standard Bridgestone tyre on the new rim and unless you needed every tenth of a second round the track you would not know the difference.

So what are you MY11 owners going for with replacement tyres then???

I got the last pair of fronts available last month from MH for my 2011, I will be fitting a full set of Bridgestones next time. I would have thought a few more might be available by now however.
