Default FS: TWO 215/40/R17 Dunlop SP Sport FM901 Tires

Hi all,

Up for sale are two front Dunlop SP Sport FM901 Tires.

I hit the curb (pretty hard) during parking and damaged side wall of the rear left tire so I had to replace the tire.

These tires are too low profile for my already lowered car, I can't even make it out of my appartment without scraping midpipe when driving over the speed bumps, so I took the chance and changed all four tires to 215/45/R17 tires. (Plus it's not good to have tires that differes more than 2/32" on the same axis)

In another words, the front two tires and the rear right tire are in good health and just need to be mounted and driven.

Due to some mis-communication with my mechanics I only saved the front two for sale...XD

Anyways, here they are.

I bought them used from another member on the forum with the rim last year when they had 75% left.

Since then I have put about 5000 kms on them (I have dedicated winter tires which I used since October last year to March this year)

So here are the pictures:










And the tread depth left
using the same-old-quarter method






zoomed in on the last one to see the tread depth


By looking at the last picture and measured the coin using a ruler,
I think there's about 6mm of tread left.
so that's 7/32" to 8/32" of tread left??

Anyway...
I would like to sell it for $80
(these were more than 100 USD per tire new from tirerack)

Finally, some more information about the tires I could find over on the internet:
