Free tires?

If anybody is interested in a pair of 225 (35 I think?)-17's they are up for grabs. Could be useful for test fitting wheel/tire sizes or limited usage. They are the DWS Continentals we took off the front of the Roadmaster and somebody might as well get some use out of them. About 7 years old, probably about half tread depth, no cracking or other evidence of dry rot yet. The grip is quite good actually, in fact we replaced them because they were too good in the wet. (mismatched with the rear tires)

If you want them let me know. We'll have to sort out how to get them to you. Better they go to someone who can use them than sit on my floor and slowly go bad.

Slight correction, they are 45 series.

Haven't found a date code on them yet. Better than half tread though.
