Default I <3 good deals

$40 for R888's shaved to 2/32nds than raced for a weekend. They came from a friend of the manger of the local Midas, and the guy threw in a $20 gift card to put towards mounting and balancing. Hopefully I'll get a few track days out of them, and have a source for future race take offs. And hopefully they're not total crap. They look dirtier than they are, lots of clag and dirt build up.

SM size, 205-50-15. I noticed my car felt a bit squisher with the current 225-50-15 I have on there right now, partly because they're on 7" rims, but I dealt with it cause A. more grip is more grip, and B. I had already bought them. Hopefully I'll have the money to do a track day soon.

Sounds like he may be a good resource for us. Says he has sets come up every few weeks or so. I told him to keep my number.
