P2 Wheels and tires 16" alloys, General Altimax Rt43s

Post by E Showell » Wed Mar 13, 2019 5:29 am

Set of 4 nice alloys-- 16" from a wrecked 2006 V70. Don't know the style. Two of the wheels have new (around 300 miles wear) General Altimax RT 43s on them. The other two have forgettable Korean tires on them.

$250 for set. Local pick up in Northwestern NJ only.

Dirk -- That would be them. Thanks for the visual. I'm just realizing that I don't really have a car I can use them on. They would fit the XC70, but with the AWD, I'm fine with all season radials and I have a pretty good set of Michelins on the XC now.

If you can, post some photos of them. People like to see if they have curb rash, scratches and what the tread condition is like.

I almost asked you about these when we were there, but we didn't have any more space in the wagons to haul them away :shock:

Super busy over the next few days. The wheels aren't mint, but there isn't excessive curb rash either. The RT 43s are pristine. Like I said -- about 300 total miles on them from new. The forgettable Koreans -- meh -- I'd replace them straight away if there wasn't so much usable tread left. They are absolutely execrable on even slightly moist roads. I'll see if I can get some pics posted. Otherwise PM me a number where I can text photos from my phone.
