Tires and tires+wheels

First up I have some barely used "Maxtrek Ingens A1" 215/45/17 W rated tires. Less than 5k on them. They are a summer tire, good in rain, surprisingly descent in dry (Taking into account I am spoiled with always running extreme tires). They are very stable at high speed, comfy, a very nice tire indeed.

They came brand new from the dealership with the purchase of the car. I am sporting winters now and will buy a more extreme summer only tire. So this needs to go.

Actual pix and as you can see even the logo is still visible on the middle tire thread:

Asking Price: 300$ for all four

Next up I have wheels and tires that have been used for two summer seasons.

These are one of the top dry/summer tires on the market period. Quite costly brand new too. Kumho Ecsta XS 225/50/R16 W rated tires. Great for autocross, track and spirited driving. Absolutely phenomenal performance for a non-R comp. The tires still have plenty thread considering they are a low thread tire.

The wheels are 16x7 Borbet sport edition with a PCD of 108x5. The PCD fits Ford Taurus, Volvos and Jaguars. If I recall an offset of +33? Weighed 18lbs. Borbet are sleek designed high quality made in germany wheels.

These were on our Ford Taurus. The tires were one important bit in the setup I put into this once a piece of crap boat car to now a total sleeper. On a private course the car is insanely stable cornering high speed corners at 140-180km/hr Fully built suspension/etc... On a lowered taurus, the rear must be slightly rolled. For volvo and jaguar, they have large arches I doubt you'd need to roll or pull anything.

Reason for sale, going with a more extreme 17" setup in summer

Asking price: 400$
