OEM Bridgestone Tires FS

Well, I too, have some old OEM tires (that came on my car - '09 335xi with sport package) that I want to get rid of cheap locally. (Mods please leave in this section because I do not wish to ship these tires.)

Bridgestone Potenza RE050As.
Front: 225/40 R18 88W 140AA
Rear: 255/35 R18 90W 140AA

One front tire I bought from a guy in Chicago for $100 to replace one of mine and I never drove on it. The other front tire was from my original purchase and it is more or less shot (5000 miles + 2 track days on it). It's certainly driveable but you don't want to drive it in a rain storm and expect to get much traction from it.

Both the rear tires are OK (I think 7/32nds) but have some camber wear. I will take pictures of tires tonight (writing this thread to motivate myself to do so) with a tire thickness gauge. $100 takes all - I want these out of my basement and garage and I'm not really interested in selling them by front/rear set or individually. (Yes, the caveat is that you need to take the one shitty front tire with you. )

(Racey, I remember you said you might want rears for Bandimere, here's your chance and get a bonus front tire. )

I am definitely willing to drive a short way (1/2 way?) to deliver them. I'm in Louisville. (Driving to downtown Denver would be OK.)

Pics are in. I used millimeters, and I was right, 5mm is a little less than 7/32nds. That tire I bought from the guy in Chicago was not a good deal for me, it has camber wear. The deal is the fronts aren't good, the rears are. In fact, there is very little camber wear on the rears, they were close to 5mm depth all the way across the tire.

Edit: They are Bridgestone Potenza RE050A I (not II)
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....a+RE050A+I+RFT
Original tire depth is 10/32nds.

5mm = .5cm ( / 2.54) = 0.19685 inches, 6/32 = 0.1875, 7/32 = 0.21875

Ok, since no one is interested and I am now considering buying some used fronts to match my rears so I can use the set on a road trip next year, I am going to just bring the fronts in to be recycled or give them away on Craigs List, unless someone wants them...

Since I haven't had any local interest, yes, I will ship. But you have to pay shipping charges, which I would hope you would expect.

I presume you want just the rears? Or do you want the fronts too? (Or just the one front?) I think a very fair price is $100 for the rears, I will ship (both or one) front tire(s) for the price of shipping, but I don't think the tire (marked RF in the pics) is worth it, unless you want this for autocross or something.

Also can you let me know if the RE050A has a * after it?
