Surely there are more J cars than AMS cars??
Hence the surplus of AMS tyres?

Try Black Circles, get them sent to your ATS.
Don’t intend to use ATS they still haven’t refunded me🤬
I paid by credit card so that’s the next step

I’ve found a set of MPS4S for the front but they are 265/35/20 ( the rears are 295/30/20 MPS4S)
I know 265 were fitted to the SVR but with 305/30/20.
What’s the thought on 265 up front and 295 on the rear.
Any potential issue with the AWD?

Decided against the 265 tyres for the front.
Found a complete set of brand new MPS4S for £740.
The oldest is DOT dated 4220
Due to be fitted in the coming weeks👍

Same issue here today with no 255/35/20 front Pilot Sport 4S tyres in stock from multiple suppliers that my local independent contacted.

I went with Porsche fit (N) rear MPS4S last month as standard fits weren’t available or were much more expensive where available; they were also much cheaper than Mercedes’ fit. Recent search today has shown standard fits are now cheaper….
The front MPS4S have always been harder to find, can’t believe it’s due to the russian black carbon wheeze above though :-)

I read somewhere that some non OE tyres have less tread depth to aid sports handling. Might be an urban myth though?
