Default tire question, keep or let go

I just purchased a car, and it had a set of shaved down toyo RA-1's for racing. The ride was too rough for me on the street, so I put on a set of Kumhos. It will be a while before I would be serious enough to get a new set of wheels for the track to mount these tires. Should I try to sell them? What would they be worth? Or just trash them? One of the tires has been flat spotted. I hate to leave them to dry rot in the garage.

if you're not going to track them, and there's enough tread left, I'll buy them if they're 225's.

They're 205's I'll have to get some pics up. They look like racing slicks. Only a few grooves left probably to make them DOT legal

Here are a few pictures of the tires. A couple of the tires have some worn spots. I don't have any experience with road racing tires so I don't know what a good tire looks like. Tell me what you think
