I don't have a Dunlop SP8000 in that size, but I'll give you the Pirelli
215/50 15 I have sitting in my garage for free if you want it.  I can
measure the tread if you want, but of the 4 I replaced, this one I'd guess
has about 1/3 of its life left.

Do you have a problem with your tires wearing out the inside tread first?  I
had the TQC alligned, but the shop said that the caster and camber were out
of specs. and could not be adjusted.  The Bentley manual confirmed this.
Have you had to deal with this?

Let me know if you want the tire.  I can send it to you UPS COD (shipping to
you only) if you do.
