Tyre advice (225/60r13)

Postby Shellysowner » 23 Jun 2007, 12:21

I have some 225/60r13 Pirelli P6 Cinturatos that I want to get rid off.

Good news: they are new and unused.

Bad news: They are from 1981.

Obviously they'll be too old to use in anger, but are they any good for show/museum use? Alternatively I could just bin them - but it seems a bit of a shame.

B1N........

.....or eBay of course. It never ceases to amaze me the sh1te people will buy when I stick stuff on to sell.
Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!

Actually they're not cracked but the bloke at the local tyre place reckons the rubber is significantly harder than it used to be. Any good to anyone on here?

They'd go nice on my 78, since I don't plan on abusing it. Any idea the cost to post them in my direction?

Let me get back to you on that - I need to weigh one and find out.

Erm, quite a lot mate at a guess I'd say £35-£40 but I can work it out exactly for you if you like. Haven't forgotten you either Chris, I'm just really busy at the mo

Ok, I'll admit, what with Billing and everything I completely forgot about these. Are you both still interested?

If the postage is under 70 quid.... but somehow I wouldn't be surprised if it's over 100.

Shipping to Canada of a 55kg parcel costs £217 :shock:

In the UK it'll be about 50 quid.

.... :shock: Well then! I can get a fresh new set for about the same.

Hopefully someone can use them. Really it would be a shame to see them binned.
