Sale Agreed. R3 19” alloys with tyres

Post by WildMan10 » Fri Nov 08, 2019 10:09 pm

Sale agreed. But there's many a slip . . .
I’m having a clear out of some things I’ve been keeping for a project car but now don’t need. These include R3 wheels, 182 forged rays RE30s, assorted tyres and registrations.

So, here is a set of 4 R3 19” alloys with tyres to fit all RX8 (192, 231 & R3).

All the alloys are straight and true with typical minor corrosion and minor kerbing.

All the tyres are the standard 225/40/19 93Y with tyre depths (mm)) as follows:
Wheel Tyre Outer Middle Inner Average % Life
Wheel 1 Michelin Pilot Sport 3.2 3.4 3.3 3.3 27%
Wheel 2 Michelin Pilot Sport 3.3 2.0 2.3 2.5 15%
Wheel 3 Bridgestone RE50A 4.6 4.3 3.5 4.1 40%
Wheel 4 Bridgestone RE50A 4.5 4.8 4.6 4.6 47%
Average 3.7 32%

The tyre on wheel 1 has a plug on the width limit. I have a 5th refurbished wheel fitted with a Michelin Pilot Supersport depths 4.8/3.8/3.8/4.1/40% if you prefer that to Wheel 1.

I also have a spare RE50A depth 7mm that I can discuss separately.

As to price, there are 2 sets on ebay, one at £675 with 225/40/19 rubbish tyres here and one at £750 with 235/35/19 Nankang ditchfinders here, hence £545 ono to club members.

Collection from Redhill, Surrey or I can pack for you to arrange a courier (eg eBay £46.50 for 4 19” wheels with tyres). I’m going to Derby at the end of the month, say 26 Nov and returning 1 Dec, and will be at the Brands track day next month.

Now back to one, a white R3, plus a Honda Accord winter car. Gone but not forgotten: 04 Tit Grey 231, 06 Copper Red Evolve (231), 09 VR R3, 10 Aurora Blue R3, 06 Black PZ; RX87 project car ;-( ; 04 White with Greddy turbo conversion ;-(

Buying a used RX8 turbo is like marrying a stripper.

Just to be clear, these wheels would also fit any S1, as well as an R3 :D
With those tyres the gearing and speedo would be uneffected

Dave, thanks for that. I've amended the listing. Generalising, they will fit many cars including the Mazda 6 and MPS.
