Default Ottawa: 4 RE-92s for sale

Yet more RE-92s for sale. Set of 4, about 32,000 Kms. Best offer
(is $100 for 4 fair?)

I think most Impreza owners would pay about $100 for a set of 4 that are new. Can you measure the tread remaining? Once I'd abused my RE-92's for 32,000km they were like slicks.

I'll try to measure the depth, but I don't know how accurate I
can be. These tire fall into the "daily driver" category, so they
ar showing normal wear only. Having the treadwer that they
do, I would assume that they still have a number of thousands of
KMs still on them.

Most RE-92's don't live past 50k of usage..... It doens't have a long tread life...... I can't remember what the treadwear rating it has but I doubt it would be higher than 360.....

Yeah, I just read that too! They sure don't seem that way when
you drive them. Anyhow, Tire Rack wants $80US each, and
10-10 and Talon want $140 Cdn each so.....

Ultimately they are worth what people are willing to pay for them.

Just measured - between 4 and 5/32 of tread left. I'll see if there
are any takers over the next few days then it is off to ott.forsale

You replace those tires after 3/32 so they have a few more thousand km left on them. Hopefully you can find someone who would pay for them. They wouldn't last me very long
