Default 15x10 6UL Nickel + 245/580 Hoosier R80 slicks - $1500

4x 15x10 6ULs in Nickel. One small blemish on the edge of one wheel from tire mounting machine. Mounted to test fit, but never driven on.

4x Hoosier 245/580R15 R80 radial slicks. New, slight scuffs from test fitting but never driven on. One needed a little bead glue to seal up, but holds air just fine.

Retail on this combo is over $2000, and you can't buy new 6ULs at any price right now. Asking $1500 firm. Located at my shop in Sunnyvale. Shipping is extra.

e: I will not sell the wheels separately unless you pay $1500 for them and agree to take the tires as well.

Ditto that. A6's would be a different story...

Uh, drive on them? They are stickier than an A6.

Think they'd last a year if they're wrapped up and stored properly?

They take MUCH longer to warm up. I'm sure they are great for competing and not so much for running a bunch of 20 minute sessions.

I'll pick these up from your shop if you decide to separate

...and you deduced that based on zero experience with Hoosier radial slicks, I presume, since it's 100% wrong. They take maybe a lap more warmup than a DOT tire and you're rewarded with substantially more grip at the end of the day. I've run 215/580 R75 slicks on Rover in the past and they do not take an inordinate amount of time to warm up. R80s are total overkill for lapping days, but then again, so are A6s or R6s...

I'll gladly separate the tires. $1500 for the wheels. Get it?

I wish I were in a better position to buy these. It's a great deal. The R80's are amazing on the track. They stick like glue!

Which is likely to be one of the reasons they're not legal for my class. But I'm just speculating.

If they're so awesome, you shouldn't have any trouble selling them separately.

For you folks who want the rims, but don't want the tires...

Buy them both. Then put the tires up for sale on other forums... where folks might actually want "real" tires for the track.

Shiiiiiet.

Stop asking me to separate them, please. It's not going to happen.
