Please Note: One tire is perfect and the other tire is near perfect [meaning, perfect tread and scuff-free walls but it does have a patch (Photos: DSC00040.jpg, DSC00041.jpg) and some installation marks on one of its beads (Photos: DSC00042.jpg, DSC00043.jpg, DSC00045.jpg)]. Please see photos.


Retail price $484/tire at Performance Tire Plus. Asking $525 or Best Offer for the pair.

Wow, I've seen these since about 1984! They should go in a museum.

Were these ever installed on a BMW? If memory serves me, they were OEM on a Mustangs around 1982-1984. Might have better luck on a Mustang forum.

The tire that is in near mint condition was very lightly used, and in the case of the other tire (the tire with minor installation marks on one of the beads), there seems to have been trouble putting it on the rim, but I'm not sure if they were installed on BMWs. That second tire has a patch and the hole was filled in with vulcanized rubber for a perfect seal. The tire was always housed inside in a climate controlled environment, so the rubber has no cracking, as shown in the photographs.

Also, I appreciate the tip about the Mustang forums, I read something about the tire being used on 1979-84 Mustangs, BMWs, and Ferraris so I may give those discussion boards a try.

I also have the tires up on FerrariChat forums and StangNet forums in case anyone would like to check out those posts.
