Quality tyres

Post by WildMan10 » Mon Dec 02, 2019 8:34 am

As part of my clear out i have the following:

4 off Michelin Pilot SuperSport 225/45/18 £145
These are the standard size for RX8s with a slightly stiffer wall (95Y). They have been on a car for less than a year then stored covered in my garage for 3 years. They should wear out well before they have any age issues.

They have the following production dates and tread depths:
Date Outer Middle Inner Average %
wk38 (Sep) 2015 6.0 6.2 6.2 6.1 71%
wk38 (Sep) 2015 5.6 5.1 4.9 5.2 56%
wk48 (Dec) 2014 6.5 6.2 5.7 6.1 71%
wk38 (Sep) 2015 4.9 4.1 5.3 4.8 49%
Average 5.6 62%

New, these are £167.30 mail order from mytyres. 4 with an average of 62% gives a pro rata of £413.89, so £145 is just over a third of that.

Collection from Redhill, Surrey or I can label for you to arrange a courier (eg Paisley freight £32.99). I can also drop off at the Brands track Day.


4 Off Goodyear Eagle Assymetric 235/40/18 £75
These are slightly wider and shorter than the standard 225/45s, giving more grip with a slightly lower rolling circle (better acceleration, higher revs at cruise), with a slightly stiffer wall(95Y). These have been stored in my garage for 2 years and show no signs of age

Date Outer Middle 1 Middle 2 Inner Average %
wk07 (Feb) 2016 5.0 5.1 5.0 5.5 5.2 55%
wk19 (May) 2012 4.3 3.0 3.3 3.7 3.6 31%
wk06 (Feb) 2016 4.2 3.6 3.6 3.9 3.8 35%
wk13 (Apr) 2012 5.1 4.7 5.3 5.6 5.2 56%
Average 4.4 44%

New, these are £87.40 mail order from mytyres. 4 with an average of 44% gives a pro rata of £154.66, so £75 is less than half of that.

Collection from Redhill, Surrey or I can label for you to arrange a courier (eg Paisley freight £32.99). I can also drop off at the Brands track day.

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.
Beware - older people may be cr@p drivers but they can afford better lawyers
