View Full Version : Trade: Brand new snow tires + Avus wheels for brakes, wheels or coilovers

I have a spare set of stock 17" Avus wheels (painted black) with pretty much new General Altimax Arctic snow/winter tires on them (maybe 1000 miles on them). These tires plus Quattro = a pretty much unstoppable tank in the snow.

I don't really drive in the snow enough to warrant keeping these, so I'd like to trade for something I'll actually use on my B5.

Items of interest:

- Big brakes
- Coil overs
- FMIC/upgraded side mounts
- Other misc. performance parts for a B5 S4
- Other wheels
- Porsche 911 Turbo
- 700 $1 bills, or 7 $100 bills, or 70 $10 bills. I suppose 130 $5 bills would be acceptable as well.

Not a great pic, but you get the point:

Here's a link to information about the tires:

Not anymore, it's on Tein springs now. Need some proper suspension though.

$700 cash price. That's basically the cost of the tires plus tax, free mounting and balancing and a free set of Avus wheels. [up]

I'm surprised I haven't gotten more trade offers. And BTW, I know I'm a known wheel snob, but I'm not looking for "baller" wheels to trade here. I'd love a set of 18" B5 RS4 reps, for example. [:)]

New price is $700. If I can't get that much, I'm just going to keep them since this winter is supposed to be a huge bitch.
