Does anyone know whether Pirelli P-Zero Rosso tyres in size 225/40 R18 have been discontinued, I can't find them anywhere?

I fitted new Pirelli P-Zero Rosso on the rears last year, and it seems to have upset the balance of the front end, making me think my 6 year old fronts, which still have about 4-5mm tread need replacing (I've played around with pressures, had suspension / geo checked, diff oil changed).

Reluctant to put on a different type of tyre as I have a C4. Any thoughts on whether I'm better off having old (but the same) or new (but different) tyres?
 
Probably a stock issue, a common size and still in production

Yikes - £500 for a pair! Nice of them to point out the RRP is £140 each so you know exactly how much they're ripping you off for... Supply and demand I guess.

Thanks. Didn't think to check eBay.
 
In case anyone else is interested, I emailed Pirelli UK customer service and they said this about the tyre:

"Unfortunately, we are currently awaiting a production date for further stock of these.

There are no issues as such however, it is not possible to manufacturer every product at the same time therefore, some may have a slightly longer waiting time for supply. In this instance, I can see the product is in development which, means we are redesigning the ROSSO (N4) in this size currently."
