    For sale, $200 for all 4. These are Hankook RSS R-compound tires, 235/40R17, shaved with 1 heat cycle for a qualifier. This is the best condition to buy R-compounds, because you don't have to heat them for a session then leave them for a week. Located in northern Utah. $200 + shipping.

    These fit the R56 even with 1.4" of lowering.

    cheers

    Depending on how old they are, this is a killer deal.
    I used this size on my 03 when it was a daily drive/track car and they worked pretty good.
    Good luck!

    Sigh ... if I didn't have 10 r-comps already taking up space in my garage already.

    Onasled, how'd you get those to fit on a 1st gen car? That is a pretty wide tire for the rear in a first gen. However, if you are willing to do the trimming and cutting required, it looks awesome.

    And yes we know Ross, go ahead and rub it in that they fit a 2nd gen car great even lowered with NO trimming.

    Yea, I did have to do a lot of grinding and even hammering out the rear fenders a bit, but it wasn't as bad as it sounds.

    Yeah, that looks awesome. BTW, what is the deal with your pass side mirror in the pic? It looks a liitle wonky.

    Haaa.... I had just washed the car after a track day. I always twisted my mirrors like that so the water would drain out.
