Hey all

A few weeks ago I bought a set of Borbet Type "E" wheels from a customer. 
I should say I bought 5 Type E wheels and 4 Pirelli P7000 Supersport tires.
 I paid $500

 The plan was to use the wheels for track tires.  Plans change, wife wants
more house so I'll do track events on my street tires.

So they're all for sale.  One tire needs to be replaced, too worn compared
to the others.  Another needs to be replaced because there is a small split
in the inner sidewall.  I didn't care as I wasn't going to use them.

One of the wheels needs to be straightened before use, the one that has the
tire with the split.  This wheel rides fine until 65mph and then you feel

Another is in need of straightening but less so.  The other 3 would be

All of the wheels have scraped curbs!  Guys wife had these on her A6 mom
car.  She can't park.  I didn't care about the cosmetics too much as they
were to be used 3-4 times a year.

So there you have it.  Nothing perfect here, just cheap.  I'll take $400
for all wheels and tires. 

 I'm in SW Connecticut.  I'd rather not UPS if I can help it.  I'll be at
LRP in June for the club event and I could find a way to get them there.
