4 Blizzaks on Rials, 2 Continental rears, half-life brakes

I have a couple of Smart things for sale, namely because I don't have any need for them anymore, and I could use the space back in the garage.

I would prefer to not ship, but I would be willing to work out something if there are no local takers. I'm located in the center of Upstate New York.

Let me throw it out there that I'm always looking for factory Smart mud flaps!

-----

First is a set of 4 Bridgestone Blizzak WS60 tires, size 145/65R15, on Rial wheels. While the tires are not staggered, the Rial rims are. The size was only due to cost savings when the original owner purchased them - knowing he'd only need them for 1 Winter. They do not have TPMS.

I purchased these from another Smart owner in Buffalo NY, and used them on my Smart through NY's light Winter of 2011/2012. I loved the tires, and they made the Smart Car a blast to drive in the snow. My Saturn is my Winter vehicle, so the Smart can stay happy, shiny, clean, rust-free and damage-free.

They were only used for 2 Winters, so the tread is still fantastic, and the wheels are in very nice shape. A couple of marks from kicked-up junk and some edge-wear due to being exposed to the elements, but I kept them very clean.

The 4 tires were $312, and the 4 wheels were $480. Take off wear and use for 2 years...

How about $600?

-----

Second is the set of rear Continental tires that came on the Smart when it was new. The rear tires likely have another 2 years in them. Tread is still decent, and there is no evidence of any uneven wear. They were used for 5 years.

I don't believe the they would pass inspection any longer, due to cupping on one edge each. You can have them if you buy the rear tires. May be good for throwing on wheels if you plan to store your Smart, and don't want to hurt good tires.

For just the rear tires - $80.
The buyer can have the fronts - if not, they're free.

-----

Third are the half-life, factory brake pads. I pulled them out of the Smart in favor of Ceramic, and I will never go back. These pads are evenly worn with no damage. The car went all the way to 32,500 miles with these brakes until I couldn't take the dust anymore. You could easily get another 30K out of these.

Dusty half-life Smart brake pads - $20.

-----

One more thing:
That fancy Jensen fold-out CD/radio unit with Bluetooth and an XM Radio module - which I've been trying to sell for ever and ever. Isn't there anyone out there that likes aftermarket options?

I decided to offer the Blizzaks and Rial wheels back up for sale since my replacement Saturn is again the Winter vehicle.

I sent a PM to Kilcsarj80 since he wanted these way back when, but I'd imagine almost 2 years later that he's probably found an alternative.

If anyone else is interested, please let me know - again, I'd prefer not to ship, but we could certainly work something out any way it goes.

*The Continental tires are no longer for sale. / I still have the half-life brake pads somewhere if anyone wants them for any reason.*

Everything here is back up for sale. No, I am not leaving the brand! I am cleaning the basement because happy wife.

Prices? Well, since it's been so long I'm not too sure anymore. Make me an offer!

The tires have not been driven on - instead stored comfortably and properly downstairs.

If you can believe it, I still have the winter tires on Rial wheels. Give me a shout if interested.

Rial le mans wheels? I need a rear set - tired of dealing with a staggered set up. Let me know if you're willing to part out.
I'm down to make that drive down from Boston once our school year ends in a few weeks!
