Snow tire setup F/S

Hello all...I am relocating Cleveland Ohio to Jackson Mississippi in 3 1/2 weeks.
Won't need these any longer lol

This is the winter set up I started using last year on my 2017 KIA Niro.

FOUR WHEELS - FOUR TIRES - SENSORS INCLUDED

Wheels: Original factory polished OEM KIA 16" rims: 114.3 x 5 and 45mm offset.
Near mint condition.
Includes factory pressure sensors.
Brenthon center caps.

OEM tires that came with them sold last summer.
Tires: Michelin X-Ice Green Low Rolling Resistance snow tires.
These tires are guaranteed to maintain the 45-55 MPG the Niro normally gets on the factory summer tires.
Used one winter - roughly 8,000 miles.

Be ready for next winter, these really make the Niro HOOK and STOP on a dime.

Jackson has some terrible roads like you have to dodge huge pot holes. Interstate is ok though.

Please buy them! It will save me from making an insulting offer. Very fair price as is though. New tires mounted/balanced would be $500 and these are only 20% worn. So the rims are basically free (or the tires are free depending on how you like to look at it). Pressure sensors worth another $50 to $100.

It is indeed a good deal. Like I said, useless to me in Mississippi. But I'll store them in my ex-wife's barn till winter. Someone WILL buy them for that price 😁

Yeah, I know. I paid somewhere around a grand at DT for a set of Konig wheels (not as nice as those KIA wheels, iMO), Bridgestone WS 80 snows, and sensors.

Not TOTALLY useless. But almost totally useless. I lived in Arkansas for many moons. We didn't get much snow, but on occasion a snow or ice storm would shut everything down for a few days.

One day while at work it started snowing. Our boss was a complete self-centered imbecile so she or her higher-ups never made any sort of "go home!" decision even though it was about 1" per hour and we ended up with 4-5". Enough to paralyze the city.
I cut out about 3pm, it took me four hours to drive 16 miles home, taking every cut-through and shortcut I knew of. Every road was jammed, and Arkies are even worse snow drivers than yankees who seem to forget everything every summer. My wife had to park it and walk because a vehicle in front of her caught fire and that was the end of any movement on that road.

I suppose those would be useful if temps drop below 40 for extended periods. But it's a great deal.

Even at a bargain price, I can easily do without here in central Ohio. I suppose the argument goes if they save me one accident... However, even with all season tires, handling is fantastic in snow.
