Default Good price on used STi tires?

Is $430 shipped a good deal for used STi Potenzas? What do you think? They have only 1100 miles on them and my current tires are just about dead- 225/45 17 Yokohama AVS ES100's.

Thats a great deal unless they have 3 autoxs on them New they are like $175 and 1100 miles wont have much wear unless he drives like me.

I don't know why I can't make a set of tires last more than a year. It just couldn't be me that's the problem!

Well if you killed your yoks in less then a year dont expect much more out of the re070s. Mine dont have all that long left and I got the car in september. But they have the equivalent of over 12 autox events on them already So I have no sidewall left they are kind of egg shaped now.

Bolster, how did you like your "old" tires? I have a deal on a lightly used set. Thanks

I liked them pretty well. Good grip in the wet (unless they're bald) and they are a good compromise between sticky/fast-wearing and hard/slow-wearing for the street.
