I have four Michelin X-Ice XI3 (205/60 R16) tires for sale mounted on 16 inch Mazda3 wheels (from a 2014 to 2016 Mazda3).

The XI3 is currently rated as the number 1 studless winter tire from Consumer Reports. This is about as good as it gets in this category.

The tires were used for two winters, have lots of tread left, even wear on all four tires, and show no abnormal wear or abuse -- they should be good for many more seasons.

The wheels are also in very good shape with zero curb rash.

Brand new the tires alone run $120 each from America's Tire (plus additional mounting costs of $16 per wheel). I bought them with "replacement certificates", as well, which covers sidewall blow outs -- and this is transferable to the new owner.

Factory Mazda3 wheels in this condition are easily worth $300.

My price: I'm asking $450 for the whole package, which I think is a steal.

Prefer local buyers to the Hillsboro, OR area -- but willing to ship tires at buyer's expense.

WOW that's a pretty good deal. I wish I hadn't bought a winter setup last year.

I also don't know any other 3's in town that could benefit from this deal.

Have you tried our local craigslist?

Yep, I gott'er posted up on the local Craigslist as well.

Would love to see a forum member take these babies off my hands though.

Great tires, but I traded my car in. As a side note, I use to have the WS70s on another car of mine, and I much prefer the XI3. On top of that, the XI3 has lower rolling resistance (better gas mileage) and a 40000 mile tread wear warranty, from Michelin -- which is pretty amazing. The WS70s I had, previously, wore CRAAAAAZY fast and I'm pretty sure had no tread wear warranty.

Thanks. I'll check into the shipping.

I'm not against shipping, if someone is interested and wants to pay the cost.

Wheels and tires are still available.

Willing to ship if anyone is interested in paying for shipping charges.

This is a great deal and if I wasn't on the other side of the country I'd buy them from you in a second. BTW, how much to ship to zip code 08854. If the shipping cost isn't bad I may get them anyway.

Thanks. I just want to make sure that they'll fit on my 2015 3S Touring. It came with 18" wheels. Just want to make sure these 16" rims will fit on my car. Thanks again.

OK dudes.

I looked into UPS and Grayhound shipping; both are pretty high -- for door-to-door (for the zip codes given) over $340 for the closest zipcode of the two. But the price can go as low as $311 if we're both willing to go to the Grayhound station to drop-off and pick-up.

= (

I'll let you know if I come up with anything cheaper. So far, it looks like $311 is as cheap as it could possibly get, unfortunately. If you're interested in any of these options let me know.

Also, if anyone wants a new quote to their zipcode, let me know. The closer to Oregon the cheaper, I'm sure.

Yeah, I even let them go for $399. I just wanted to get rid of them, although in hindsight, I don't think lowering the price helped at all. Winter tires do NOT sell fast on Craig's List. This is the second set I've sold and it takes a while -- probably because of the wheel and tire combo is very specific to a limited set of car(s).

The guy who bought them definitely got a good deal -- said he would have bought them at $450 as well (but the price was already lowered).

Anyway, they are gone and it's a big relief. Now I can make room for my new set of winter tires on order (new car is a 2016 328i xDrive, which I'm really enjoying).

100 /corner for those wheels and tires?! Maaaaaannnn wow. Really wishing I had found this thread sooner. At that price for that combo I would expect them to go fast. Specially in our region. I'm about 350 miles north right across the border, so essentially same weather patterns, and here those would've sold in a week or two! Lots of Mazda's here tho...

Anyway congrats on the new whip I love beamers. When the mazda is paid off I might go Beamer or Audi. My dad just got the '17 A4. VERY nice, and substantially cheaper than BMW, but I've been a Beamer fan forever.

Take it easy on those roads brother cheers

Thanks. I'm 40 and have been fascinated by BMWs since college -- when I pined for an E36 M3.

The cost and poor reliability kept me scared away until now, however. But the F30 3 series finally has "average" reliability (according to consumer reports). The reliability-bar has been raised across the board though, so "average" now is pretty decent compared to even 10 - 15 years ago. So chances are I'll be happy in that department.

The F30 3 series was the first BMW I drove. I was hoping my test drive would go bad, since now that I'm older I really don't like the image associated with BMW -- AKA the BMW d-bag. heh. I just wanted a good driving all-arounder. But I really liked liked my test drives, and the car fit me well, so (loooonnnng story short) I took the plunge. I don't regret it so far. I just wish it didn't cost so much to get a car like this. The badge doesn't do it for me -- it's everything else.
