[SOLD] BFGoodrich g-Force Rivals 245/40/18

Up for sale is a lightly used set of BFG g-Force Rivals which were purchased new in March of 2013 and used for autocross on an STX-prepped Mazda RX8.  I'm asking [sold] including shipping to the contiguous USA.

Asking price: sold
Shipping: Included
Size: 245/40ZR18
UTQG: 200 AA A
Tread Depth: 6.5 to 7.0/32nds
Manufacture Date: 5th week of 2013
Location: Massachusetts
These were dedicated autocross tires which were never driven on the street.  They were used for 10 events in 2013, for a total of approximately 100 autocross runs on asphalt.  Tread depth (see pics below) is above 6.5/32nd's on all four tires.  For reference, these tires are molded at 7.2/32nds when new.  The RX8 is very easy on tires, and tread wear is very even across the face of each tire.

Tread Splice: Minor, cosmetic tread splice is very common with BFG Rivals.  These tires all show some minor tread splice, which appeared within the first handful of autocross runs and has never gotten worse.  BFG and Tire Rack have discussed this issue on several forums, and it has been deemed cosmetic and not a safety or performance issue.

Also, one tire has a small gouge in the bead, which I presume happened during either mounting or dismounting.  I showed the damage to a local racer who owns a tire business, and he assured me the tire will still hold air.  I have included a picture below showing the minor damage and have priced the tires with this in mind.

Local Pickup / Delivery to Nationals:
I can drop a bit off my asking price for local buyers or deliver to SCCA Solo Nationals to save on shipping.
