    I have two sets of the take off Pirelli slicks in 305/680/18 size. One set was never used. The other set has one 20 minute track session last week. They both have a ton of life left. I get my tires from John Berget in Wisconsin and he has never let me down. I really don't want to ship them and if you are relatively close to Philly I can meet you half way. $450 for the unused set and $400 for the used.

    Good luck , those are great prices! Just came off a set that I used for 4 track weekends ---- granted 3 were at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka , Kansas , which is super easy on tires. Sure you will sell them and they are as fast as a set of R7s in my estimation.

    Yes....agreed! They stick like glue. I am going the DOT route just because of my needs at the moment but these are a great deal....always have been.

    It's fairly tall if you are comparing to a 30 or 35 series tire like the Federals in my other sale. I will take a pic and post it later.

    Tire on left is a Hoosier R6 35 on the right is a Pirelli 305/680-81 same exact rim. The one on the left will make me shift a bit ;) earlier. I run them both, some corners are happier with the 35's some with the 680's by the photo, it looks like the difference is dramatic, which it is visually, but in the car, you just drive different with each tire.
    IMG_1220.JPG EDIT: I should add that the Hoosiers are definitely faster if you don't make a mistake. I think I get more feedback from the (higher sidewall) P's so I can avoid mistakes if that makes sense. JP sells great tires, been running them for years.

    I'm pretty low.....coilovers and 18x11 Forgestars with 3.5 neg camber. I used 13mm spacers and no rub anywhere. If I get time I can put the wheels on the car and drop it off the lift so you can see how it sits.

    Awesome thanks. If it works I’ll probably take both. Easy to pick up.

    Anybody run different sizes front and rear? Smaller diameter front = quicker turn in??

    I have 645 in the front with 660 in the rear.
    Turns well. I don’t have another set to compare to.

    I would guess that a 680 rear would work best with 660 in front. Interesting idea.

    Ok, I need to get these 8 tires out of my garage.....killing my space! I will knock off another $50 so $800 takes both sets. That's $200 off my purchase price so this is a great deal!
