Default got a really good deal for used 17 azenis sports, worth getting?

My friend is gonna sell me his used set of 17 inch azenis for 170. he only used them at the track once and want to get rid of them since they have been sitting in his garage.

i was planning on getting allseasons such as the falken ziek 512 or yoko es100s, but now i think i will prob just get his tires since they are pretty cheap.

I know they are good performance tires, but i am kinda worried about the noise and comfort.

i live in Socal, so it rarely rains here. but i wanted to get allseasons when i go snowboarding or road trips. i guess i can just keep my stock setup for that

i currently am still running on the stock rims and tires. i plan to get torques.

thanks alot!!

170 for all four? Sounds like a deal to me depending on how much tread is left. (I'm assuming 225/45-17?). You MIGHT have some rubbing in the rear with 4 people in the car fully loaded.... that's the only drawback.

They are more noisy, and will follow ruts in the road. You'll feel the bumps.. but then you'll have some great performance.

Depending on how much wear on the tires, it's a decent buy.

thats a very good deal i think. I paid 500 for all 4 brand new. I get slight rubbing in the rear, but i'm running 245/45/17's.
