Default Trade: RComps on Stock rims for your allseason on Stock

Hi,

I'm trying to trade my R-comps on stock WRX rims (painted gold) for a set of fairly low mileage all season tires on stock WRX rims.

My tires are Kumho V700 Victoracer 225-50/16. I bought these on 7/2/2002 at Radial Tire.

I did about 40 AutoX runs on them last year and about 53 runs this year. They were flipped on the rims after the first event of this year and have worn very evenly.

The tires are down to the wear bars on all four, but they've seemingly been that way all year. They still have tread grooves all the way around and they are still gripping very well. I would guess they have a half season left, maybe 20 runs or so.

I'm looking for some RE92's or similar. My RE92's lasted for 22K miles, so I don't want any with 20,000 miles on them.


If I can't find anyone to trade, I'd like to buy some used RE92's if anyone has some cheap ..... ( I sold mine for $120 new) and I'd sell my Rcomps, even cheaper.

thanks,


Gonzalo.


Edited> 1/2 season, I meant to write they have about 20 runs left not 40, but who knows ...

I've got an extra set of RE92's. They were just taken off my extra set of wheels. I'm not sure about the mileage, but I can take some pictures of the tread if you're interested. I think there is a decent amount of tread left.

hey, thanks for responding.. Are you looking to sell the RE92's ?

My tires and wheels are still together so I would have to pay someone to dismount them, then pay someone to mount them when I get back with the new (used tires).

If I already had my new (used) tires then I can mount them and essentially get the R's off at the same time without paying twice.

I'll try to get some pictures up as well. I'm about 2.5 hours from Philly so I'd like to see if something local turns up, but let me know if you're selling the RE92's. How much mileage on them ?

I can sell them or possibly just trade for your tires.

I just bought an extra set of the stock wheels, and had the tires removed to make room for some R-compounds. I was considering buying victoracers for next season, because they are reasonable. I doubt your set will last another season, but it would be nice to practice on them before I ruin a new set.

When you say it's down to the wear bars, does that mean 0" tread depth? Do you think they will last for a drivers school (20 to 30 autocross runs?) I don't want to kill them in the middle of drivers school and not be able to finish.

Anyway, I'll take some pics of my tires and try to get them up tonight.

Default RE-92's

If you are still looking for RE-92's let me know. I'm willing to meet somewhere in between. I don't know the exact mileage of the tires, but they are in very good shape. Send me an e-mail if you are interested.

Hi

If I don't find anything, I'll get in touch with you. How much do you want for the re92's ? I was hoping to just trade the rims/tires. RE92's arent' worth a whole lot, and neither are a set of R-comps that are a year and a half old.

What I can't do is take the tires off then trade, because it will cost $ to dismount the tires and then $$ to get the new ones balanced. I need to have new tires, go to the shop, then keep the old tires, and then sell those cheap.

I'll sell my used RE-92's for $20 a piece. They aren't mounted, and I could possibly drop them off somewhere, next time I visit my brother in DC.
