    Anyone know where I can get a set of very used, cheap, road race tires that will last one track day at the convention?

    I need 235/50/17, 245/45/17, or 225/50/17.

    Thanks.

    I have a set sitting under my car port right now. I'm in Nashville. They are 235/45/17 though.

    That's close enough on the size. Will you be coming to the convention?

    Oh, that's too bad. Shipping would probably be a ton. Oh, well. I appreciate the post. Thanks.

    I know that Zach and the Blue Turd are planning on attending. He'll have to come thru Nashville on his way. If you want to work something out with him I'm sure he'd be happy to help out. Last year he stopped by and picked up a bumper for Toolman on the way.

    Nice! I'll check with him.

    So how much do you want for your set of tires?

    How's $50 for the set? They are older and used but appear to be in pretty good condition for what they are. I was going to use them at the drag strip when I finished my swap but that doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon.

    That sounds great! Now let's hope Zack will be okay with picking them up.

    When you message him let him know that he won't have to go as far off the interstate this time. The dealership I work at is literally next to I-40. He can take the 840 bypass directly to me and then be right back on track.
