Titanium Handling Package Tires

My 2013 TI Hatchback is on order with a build date of 10/15/12. The Handling Package comes with Michelin Pilot Summer tires that will have to come off due to the winters here in St. Louis MO. I'm replacing them with Bridgstone ultra-high performance all-season tires and am wondering if there is enough value to selling the Michilen's. I know I can't post for-sales yet but just wondering if I should keep them or not.
Mike

They are not bad tires. They are relatively quiet and they soak up bumps fairly well. They seem to have good grip (I am not doing any road racing), I have had them in rain a couple of times and they did well. You would probably get about 25k miles out of them. I am not going to buy them again when mine wear out. Only because I want something that lasts longer.

They are high performance tires - really good ones at that. If you don't want them, I'm sure people will be glad to take them off your hands as long as you don't ask for arms and legs in return.

The other option you have, is buy yourself a set of good snow tires and cheap alloys for the winter months, and keep the PS3s for the summer (I'd go this route).

All seasons are a band-aid in snow. They usually work alright, but they never work extremely well in extreme weather.

the michelin pilot tires are expensive. They would sell quite easily on the used market for people looking for replacements and not wanting to pay the MSRP.

That's good to know. I'll let you all know if I decide to sell them.

Boy, looking at some of the online stores I see that they usually run close to $300 apeice. Yep, they will go up for sale when I get the car at the end of the month.

I just did this Friday and got the same tires! I traded them in at the tire dealer. I got $80 each for my old ones with 4k miles on them. Not nearly what I wanted, but then I didn't want to deal with craigslist morons or shipping them.

I got $300 locally for my OEM 16" Contis with 1000 miles on them so I'm thinking you should easily get $500 from them probably a bit more.

I'd keep them, all seasons are a road you do not want to go down...

The PS3s are absurdly capable, high performance summer rubber. Them and the Super Sports are regarded very highly.

Spare yourself the misery that all season tires always are and just get a nice winter set of Blizzaks.
