I have the Goodyear runflats on the rear of my 2000 Corvette--and
although they only have about 13,000 miles on them, the tread is
sufficiently worn that snow traction is a problem. I'm not even close
to the treadwear indicators, and if this was March, I would just plan
on not driving for a few weeks. But winter hasn't even arrived yet,
and I am having just a bit too adrenalin rush from driving around town.
I'm very impressed with the Michelin Pilot A/S runflats that I have on
the front, and I am thinking of ordering some for the rear. I just
hate the thought of throwing away these Goodyears, however, since even
at TireRack.com, they cost $376 each--and there's probably 5000-7000
miles left on these tires.
1. Take the tires home, and put them in my garage. When the new tires
wear out in a couple of years (assuming that it is spring), I put the
Goodyears back on.
2. Someone who lives in a warmer climate wants to buy these Goodyears
from me. I'm not sure what the shipping charges are likely to be, but
if I could get even $50 a tire (plus shipping charges) for them, I
would be a happy person, and you would be getting a bargain.
