Feeler: Anybody interested in staggered Goodyears?

I'm planning to mount conventional all-seasons on my M Sport in the next week or two. I had intended to keep the staggered OE Goodyear Efficient Grip runflats for when I get rid of the car, but I'm already up to my ears in tires and wheels and really don't want to store another set. The tires had just a couple thousand miles on them when I took them off and mounted the winters. They run about $1,100 a set on Tire Rack's website. I'll entertain any reasonable offer. I prefer pick up but I am willing to ship. Located in southwest Michigan.

Sorry - they're 18". Specifically, 225/45/18 front and 255/40/18 rear.

I think I am doing the same when I take the winter tires off. But I might go for conventional summer performance tires since I have the complete winter set.

I considered dedicated summer tires since I also have a separate set for winter. But in the end I decided to go with the better ride and much better wear I'll get out of performance all seasons. Another consideration is the switchover period in the fall and spring. I have long snow seasons here, and the all-seasons will allow me to keep my primary tires on later in the fall and change them out earlier in the spring.

I would do the same if I was up near you. In SoCal the only snow I drive in is up in the mountains.
