    Wanted To Buy Looking for cheap set of wet tires

    Does anyone have a used set of wet tires they'd be willing to part with? Would likely have to ship since I am in new england and not many racers out here.

    Default Rain tires

    You are really better off buying a new set if you plan on any number of wet races. Rain tires only work well when they are fresh and have sharp edges on the tread blocks. By the time you pay freight and buy used tires you will have falsely saved money! Experience learned the expensive way!

    I am in Charlotte and may have a set to sell after the Memorial Day Majors race. Please PM me if you still need them.

    I also disagree with the comment that buying new is better. I haven't priced a set of rain tires in several years but assume it's close to the cost for slicks ($1,200 mounted). Most rain tires just sit in the trailer and are barely used, like mine. I bought them in 2018 and have used them more this year than any year before (twice). While not as soft as new, they are still soft, have plenty of tread and still work on a wet track. They still have plenty of life and the price will be a small fraction of a new set.
