For Sale: (2) 285/35/18 Hankook R-S3's

Item Interest

For sale are 2 of the 4 Hankook Ventus R-S3's that I picked up from Persian54. Original for sale thread is here. He was selling them for $160.00 and I have put 0 miles on them since I picked them up from him. As he said, they are about $265.00 + S&H from Tirerack. The reason I am selling is because the tires are too wide, and they rub against my front suspension when I put them on. The rears are good though, so I'm only selling 2, and I just picked up some brand new 265's for the front. I will sell them for his asking price, $160.00 firm each (a.k.a. $320.00 for both). Local pick-up only in Rowland Heights/Diamond Bar area, as I don't have the time to ship. I picked them up from Persian54 locally as well. Please PM me if interested. Thanks!


Here are tread depth measurements of tire 1. As you can see, tread depths are at around 8/32 all across the board.

For comparison's sake, here are photos of a brand new tire. The tread is slightly higher than 8/32, but are around the same level. I planned to keep the 2 as spares, but seeing as the tires had so much life on them, I figured that they'd inevitably wear at around the same rate, given their intended use.
