FS: 4 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Tires Porsche Boxster (2) 205/50ZR17 & (2) 255/40ZR17

SOLD!

One set of (4) Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires of staggered sizes, generally designed to fit Porsche wheels. These tires have never been mounted to wheels. They were obtained for my 2001 Porsche Boxster which I no longer own. Here is what I have:

TWO (2) – 205/50ZR17 MICHELIN PILOT SPORT PS2 TIRES, and
TWO (2) – 255/40ZR17 MICHELIN PILOR SPORT PS2 TIRES, for a TOTAL of
FOUR (4) – TIRES

These tires, all together, are valued at OVER $1000.00.

TireRack Prices:

TWO (2) – 205/50ZR17 MICHELIN PILOT SPORT PS2 TIRES ($386.00 – unshipped)
TWO (2) – 244/40ZR17 MICHELIN PILOR SPORT PS2 TIRES ($554.00 – unshipped)
TOTAL SHIPPED = $1008.42!!

Shipping:

These tires will be shipped to the lower 48 states ONLY with tracking and insurance via UPS Ground.

Overview of tires, as sourced from TireRack.com:

“The Pilot Sport PS2 is a Max Performance Summer tire member of the Michelin Pilot family of low profile, high-speed tires. Initially developed for Original Equipment (O.E.) on some of the world's most prestigious sports cars and performance sedans, the Pilot Sport PS2 combines world-class dry road traction, handling and cornering. Some of the first Pilot Sport PS2 O.E. fitments included the BMW Alpina Z8, McLaren SLR and Porsche GT2/GT3 models. The Pilot Sport PS2 is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

On the outside, Pilot Sport PS2 features two different tread rubber compounds (a hybrid silica/carbon black compound that begins at the tire's outer shoulder and continues across the tread until it joins a high-silica compound that continues to the tire's inside shoulder) molded into an asymmetric design with large outer shoulder blocks and continuous intermediate and center ribs to enhance steering response and cornering stability. Both tread compounds are specifically formulated for their location to combine dry and wet traction with crisp corning and high speed capability. The tread design also features wide circumferential grooves and lateral notches that help channel water through the footprint to enhance wet road traction.

On the inside, the tread design is supported by two high-tensile, lightweight steel cord belts that are further reinforced by size-optimized, precisely placed individual Aramid/nylon hybrid filaments to provide improved steering response and resistance to distortion while enhancing ride quality and high-speed durability.”

These are also on eBay (see for pics): 4 Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 Tires Porsche Boxster 2 205 50ZR17 2 255 40ZR17 | eBay

** I also have a set of OEM 17in Boxster Twist wheels for sale that would be a match for these tires. Please see my other FS post!

Your fall back position

I can't do your price, but wanted to let you know that I could do $600 delivered to 62526. I'll keep that bid open for two weeks to give you time to attract a better bid, but at the end of two weeks, you will need to check to see if I still have the need. A free option for you. Thanks, Joe

You might want to try listing these over on Rennlist. Someone there might want to run them on their 964/993 with 17" OEM wheels.
