thoughts on these Pirelli tires on ebay?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...ayphotohosting

i thought 50 bucks for these 2 tires was pretty cheap but when i searched ebay some more seems there all kind of these tires in that price range?

i thought pirelli made a good tire?
is there something about this model of tire thats really bad?

The tires don't have much tread left and also note what the seller put on the description... " ...may have patches or plugs."

I personally hate Pirelli's, those tires are half done atleast & having patches & plugs in them doesn't help the sale either, don't even know if it was fixed properly, I would pass on those tires

i think it says may have patches or plugs becuase when i looked at his other auctions looks like he deals in big volume and uses the same set up for all his auctions, just changes the pics?

Oh yeah, they are a nice tire, no doubt..........he takes his Porsche to Mosport and wants something a bit more track oriented.......I have talked to him about the tires, and he likes them............they wouldn't come stock on a porsche if they were crap!
