Anyone want these? They've been sitting in my guest room/parts storage room for a year and half. I'll dismount them and keep the wheels. 

Hoosier DR2 225/50R15. DOT date 2018. Used like 8 times maybe.

Asking $300 for the pair. Possibly cheaper for a Challenge contender. Tire rack has them $250/each new. 

EDIT:

$100 to a GRM'r

$100 for the pair. Already dismounted. Pickup in Atlanta area only.

How much better for drag racing would these be then 245 Hoosier A7s? 

Hundredths?  10's of hundredths?  50 or more hundredths?

I've dragged in a Miata and autocross tires with no real issues.  In the Q45 we just spun through 1st gear and part of 2nd.

Not sure, but Datsaniti ran 12s in these hitting the giggle juice right off the line so hard the rods were shaking from fear.

My supercharged Miata could lay two stripes in my driveway on SM7 Hoosiers, but could only get a little chirps on some decade old Mickey Thompson slicks, and that with maybe 175 HP. I never tried the Hoosiers on the strip in Gainesville, just the Mickeys, and they never spun, even with no burnout. My next Challenge car will have dedicated autocross and drag tires.

I'd be tempted, but I'm absolutely certain that they'd grenade a G series transmission on launch

I'll take them. 
 

Besides, I'm overdue for a trip to come see you!

 

Can you hold them for a couple weeks?

Of course! The online bidders from those *other* sites are being extra flaky on this item. Plus you can ride in the hot rod by then.

No but I'll be in Florida in October. If they don't sell by then, I'll make sure they leave the Challenge with someone.

$100 COD to the Challenge?  If so I'll claim them.
