Tires and turn signals

Yeah, I know I need tires! =)  Actually I do like the AZEV Type A's. 
I had them on my 2nd Coupe GT.  I saw your ad but wouldn't want only a
pair.  I'm already dealing with my own half a set, otherwise I'd be
more interested.  I have two 18x8" OZ Superleggera's in anthracite. 
I'm waiting on a guy with 3 of them who's buying a set of 4 from
someone else.  The color is discontinued, btw, and I'm trying to save
some cash.

Anyway, if I don't complete my set with some wheels from that guy,
then I'll buy two new silver ones and powder coat the set at a local
place for $30/wheel.  There's a S4tt around here that had a set of
Oettinger RE's done in anthracite.  It's darker than the original OZ
color, but I like it.  That's the plan for wheels and tires for now.

What happened to the rest of your set, road damage?
