Question BayTire Used Tires

http://www.baytires.com/

Not sure if anyone has experience with them. Yesterday I noticed two side bumps on my tires (right side, front and rear tires). My plan is to eventually swap the RFT for "go flats" but not this soon.

New OEM tire from tirerack was about 288 for the front and 340 for the rear (from memory). I did not want to invest that much on tires that I did not like.

So after searching furums and looking at ebay and CL, I found these guys. Very highly rated on ebay.

They had the exact match for my Bridgestone Potanza RE050A RFTs.
225/40/18 with75% tread was $109
255/35/18 with 55% tread was $89

Total bill for 2 tires: $199 with free shipping.

So not sure how i feel about this. Will let you know when I see the tires (you can refund them if not mounted). But I thought this was a good interim solution for now.

A little pricey, but I can definitely see them fulfilling a need in the marketplace. Curious how they measure the 55% tread if, as typical of BMW tires, the tires were not rotated and the treadware is noticeably uneven.

Are you a "shill" for this "used tire" sham? I would recommend all forum members to AVOID any used tire organization...like a ten foot pole.
Used tires are usually over-aged (longer than the 6-year age BMW recommendation), may be REPAIRED, or damaged...and don't come with ANY guarantee whatsoever.
Be SUSPICIOUS of this post!

Really, a "shill"? I thought I was pretty clear about my intentions.
