Maxxis tire options snafu

I see that Maxxis tires are widely popular these days and I can't help but wonder if other people have the same problem I did. So I went into my LBS to get a rear Ikon 3C EXO TR and a front Ignitor EXO TR, I'm on round two and only have one tire that I wanted. I'm going to keep the second as a spare and order the other tire online. Is this a hard tire to order? My shop is pretty competent and they even singled out what I wanted in the book with me. Is it possible the distributors are to blame for these errors with all the different options/sizes per model? The Ikon had 4-6 different options depending on size, all of which semi overlap, the Ignitor has 5 for each size. I'm not complaining that I can get the exact tire I want/need but it's getting apparent why their cost is so much higher than more cookie cutter options. Anyone else have this much trouble ordering what they want?
