For Sale - Michelin Pilot Sport AVS Plus 225/45/17 - set of 4 - $250.
Been to the track. Have <1500 miles total. Driven on 3 Saturdays, a Sunday, and a Thursday.

3rd pic shows chunking on two of the tires (which were mounted on the front right side).

They look to be in good shape, minus the expected track damage (feathering). What kind of tread depth do they have left?

Thanks,

boxkita 01-21-2013 06:52 PM

I'll check tonight.

Any status on the tread depth? I may be interested in those if they're not too hammered.

sorry, keep forgetting. Tho, I did think about it when I walked out the door this morning. Action & thought connection is somewhat broken.

using a very technical measuring device, a penny, I've determined the following:
1. the sharp ridges that appear on a new tire are not on these
2. holding a penny with Lincoln's head into the groove, the center comes to his nose on all tires.
3. using same test as #2, the edges of what were the right front corners are flush (no ridges). However, the rest of the tire is fine.
4. using the same test as #2, the rear tires have mostly uniform wear across the width.

Note: the tires were removed because they no longer suited a track day flogging, not because they didnt suit road driving.

Thanks for the info Boxkita. I may be able to come by and check them out sometime later this week or this weekend.

Thanks

I'll be out to the Monroe fairgrounds this Sat. I'll throw them in the trailer if you think you'll drop by.

boxkita 02-01-2013 02:32 PM

no fairgrounds visit tomorrow. trailer wont hook up to the truck, and miata isnt street legal.

If you want to see the tires, I'll bring them to Redmond next week.

trhull 02-04-2013 01:29 PM

I'll pass at this point, what I have works and I just shelled out a bunch of maintenance parts.

Thanks for all the info GLWS!

Too bad you aren't in the Portland area, I'd jump on this deal otherwise!

boxkita 09-12-2013 05:58 PM

still have these, still in same condition. if I goto taps & caps next weekend, I can throw them int he back.

scoobyroo 09-17-2013 11:19 AM

If you head to Eugene or even Portland some time, I'll take them. But I don't suppose that is likely.

boxkita 09-17-2013 12:34 PM

maybe. Been debating on going to the taps & caps meet this sat. If you are going, I'll bring them down.

You should definitely come to the Caps N Taps meet - be great to meet you!
