IL MSW Type 12 in Bright Silver - 17x8

The Details:
Wheels: MSW
Model: 17x8 MSW Type 12 Bright Sil
Size: 114.3 x 5 pattern.
TPMS: Included x 4
Tires: 215/55R-17 Bridgestone Blizzak WS-50

Original Invoice Total: $1,059.36

I bought these in 12/2008 for my 2007 RX-8 GT. I believe I talked to Connor at Tire Rack. I think he is still a vendor here. I can supply the original invoice upon request. I am also supplying plenty of pictures of the condition. I was going to replace two tires, and use the other two tires one more season. About 12K miles on them. Obviously, the are not the most long-lasting tires that I have ever owned. I sold the car with 38K on the clock (racked up over my 2007-2013 ownership). I loaded this post with major info to show intent. I am not a scammer and want these gone, so I can get my car back in the garage.

Things to Note for Potential Buyers:
  • No Wheel Rash Upon Visiual Inspection; however,
  • One spoke on one wheel has a couple abrasion marks. The spoke next to it has one light scratch. I have no clue how it happened. My guess is it happened in storage, to the top tire, while shifting other items.
  • They were stored in plastic tire bags while stored in a garage.
  • While on a trip to PA, my RX8 developed significant negative camber wear on the rear wheels. Unfortunately I did not notice until I got home and did maintenance (after a few thousand miles gone before catching it). The pictures will show this.
  • You may want two get tires replaced.
  • Please see through the grime. Just moving them reminded me that I sold it for a Volkwagen (i.e. two young daughters now)
  • I will clean only if absolutely necessary.

Asking Price: $500

I was timing out when trying to load pictures,
so here is a link to the Imgur album

I am trying something new. I am posting the worst conditions here. No surprises. Individual tread and wheel condition pics are in the Imgur album link if still interested. Let's not waste each other's time, right?

Here is an example camber tire

A note to the Moderation Staff:

I have been a member here since 2008. I don't post much and mostly consume the vast amount of information here. I have never really found an appropriate time to add to any tech threads in a constructive way. To comment would only add noise to the experts trying to transfer knowledge, and to me, that gums up the forums. You might want a default membership term for those of us who do not post often or much at all but have been hear for many years. If you could see it in your good graces to give me main forum exposure, I would greatly appreciate it.
