Question OK, who wants worn tires on stock WRX rims replaced with Blizzak WS-50s?

Edit: Almost forgot I live in Morgantown West Virginia. So offer only if you're close please.

Last weekend I had four Blizzak WS-50s mounted, balanced and installed on my stock 2002 WRX; total cost for tires, shipping, and mounting was approximately $600. I bought the tires from tirerack.com and had them installed/balanced at a local shop for $30. I immediately went home and set the tire pressure to 35F/32R which gives the best wear/handling characteristics in my experience...

My WRX was rearended badly (about 20 mph) Monday, with my poor Blizzaks only having ~200 miles on them. Being that my WRX has unibody damage, I am likely going to trade it in for an STi.

Because a dealer could care less if my car has $500 Blizzak WS-50s or $50 Mastercrafts on the rims as far as trade in value is concerned, I am wanting to swap rims/tires with a fellow nasiocer at a discounted rate so I can get back a small portion of my $600 invested. I want $300 firm to swap rims and tires for rims and tires.

My only requirement is that the tires I am swapping for are on non-mangled stock WRX rims, have been balanced when they were installed, and are not bald or have wire showing, as I may have to drive my WRX a few hundred more miles yet. I don't care if the tires are worn, just not completely worn out.

PM me if interested.
