OK. Tires are off. They are 225/40-18 Bridgestone RE040A RFTs which are the standard OEM sport package tire size and compound. I will measure the tread depth when I get home, but one was replaced by the previous owner of the car, so the tread depth is probably 2/32 deeper on one tire than the other. For the purposes of lease turn-in, both would have plenty of tread. Both balanced just fine on my wheels, and neither appears to have any plugs on them (I'll double check). My asking price would be $125 per tire + shipping. I stopped by UPS, and they estimate ground shipping for both tires would total about $100 to SoCal (Tirerack estimate is $60, so they get a better deal). So the sum total would be $350 shipped.
EDIT: I have a good eye: 9/32 on one tire, 7/32 on the other. Summer tires usually start off life at 10/32 or 11/32.
