BFG R1 245/45/16" tires - some new + 16"x7",8"&9" wheels

I bought these for the Road Atlanta 9 hour enduro this last December. Due to rules changes, I can no longer run 16" tires for enduro purposes, so I am selling them.

I bought 8 tires, but due to the 30 degree temps, experienced very little wear. 3 tires still have the molding nubbies on them - these were heat cycled once on my street car for about 5 miles - as new. We changed one tire 2 hours in to chase down a vibration issue. \This turned out to be rubber pic-up, as we were not getting heat into the 245's with a 2,400lb car in the 30 degree temps. So one tire has one 2 hour HC, 3 have the full 8 hours, and one 6 hours. We picked up more rubber than we wore off, it seems. All tires have the treadware indicators showing >2/32nds (1/2 tread depth). They do have some rubber pick-up, but this could be scrubbed off easily on a warmer day.

"New" tire with nubbies on it:


Tire with one 2 hour HC:


Treadwear indicator showing 2/32nds on tires run for the full 8 hours!



$700 for all 8 tires + shipping.

Also have a variety of 16" 944 wheels from- one set of 16x7&8" phone dials - painted gunmetal grey. One set of 16x8&9" 928 D-90 wheels. One rim has slight flat area on inside. I couldn't find it looking to photgraph it, but it can be seen when the wheel is spinning on the balances, Balances, and performs fine - very subtle.

Both set are most suitale for track wheels - not pristine, but solid & presentable:




All late offset, 52.3mm

$400 for Phone Dials, $500 for the D-90's, OBO

IF those tires experienced 30 degree temps... are they still soft or have they hardened up?

The tires were never hard frozen at those temps. We turned low 44's with them at Road Atlanta (well under 944 Spec track record) when the temps briefly climbed above 40 degrees, so I'd say they are prety sticky. They have been indoors in a heated garage since.
