In case you're going to need some Toyo tires in the very near future, you might want to think about getting them right now. Their factory in Sendai was shut down following the earthquake & tsunami. The story at the link below indicates that they are resuming test operations.

They started shipping limited quantities since that report but they still have the same issues mentioned. Discussed a bit in the tire forum. Tires and wheels are my last big ticket item and rather than wait I may snap them up now in case there are shortages. A guy at the NASA forum from KS is reporting his local supplier is out of 888s and can't get anymore right now.
