FS: Mich. Pilot Alpins 205/50 R-17****SOLD******

Too early in the year to sell these?* Asking $450 shipped.* Less than 500 miles on them, since I had them on less than one month this spring.*

I'm not interested because I already own these tires for my winters. Why are you selling them? They are great winter tires, no? Actually mine are the Pilot Alpin PA2's, is that any difference? Just wondering if you didn't like them or just don't want dedicated winter tires.

I'm selling them because I don't have the car anymore. Unfortunately, or fortunately I didn't really get a chance to try them in the snow here. We had like 2 days all winter were there was snow on the ground. The times I used them in the slush, they worked great.... Better than the stock badyears on dry.

Well, i *do* need winter tires, but i dont have any 17" wheels unfortunately..

Also, is running on ALL SEASONS for simply the tires first winter just as dangerous as if they were a bit used? i just got my mz3 and not sure what to do about the all seasons for winter or not.

I put these on the stock 17's that came with the car and used the RX-8 wheels once winter was over....which didn't last very long at all. Depends on what the all seasons you have on the car now. If they are the stock RSA's you are just as well off running summer tires in the snow.....

Stock RSA's are the worst tires ever...hated them even in the summer. My new 06 comes stock with TOYO Proxies All Seasons which I'll use this winter, right now I have after market rims w/ Kumho Ecsta Supra Summer Tires. Taking 15mph exit ramps at 60 mph is fun...

YA Toyo All Seasons are great, my parent's Pathfinder has 17" Toyos and we dont even need to put winter tires on the car... plus 4 wheel drive

So you say the 06 comes with Toyos...is that only the GT (or in US 'S&#039 model? Or did you have to add it as an option? I dont have my car yet and i have no clue what tires it comes with :/
