I "think" this might fit a Lotus with 17" rims or other cars you might have

Tire size: 235/40/17 . Daily driven only 1,000 miles between home and car shows with no track time. Has 70-80-% tread left. Tirerack sells these for $218/each.
These are super sticky tires with a 40 UTQG rating and are banned from running in the "modified" class in Redline Time Attack events. Asking $400 local pickup only in Pasadena. PM if interested

Info here:
BFGoodrich g-Force R1

The g-Force R1 radial is BFGoodrich's Track & Competition DOT racing tire developed for prepared vehicles looking for race- and time attack-winning performance, as well as track-day drivers seeking predictable grip that is comfortable to drive at the limit. The g-Force R1 radial is designed to offer best in class dry grip, cornering power, steering response and turn-in precision to inspire driver confidence for the quickest times lap after lap.

The g-Force R1 uses a competition tread compound molded into a symmetric, non-directional, semi-slick tread design with just 4/32" of beginning tread depth eliminating the need for shaving. Rubber bridges are molded repeatedly across the two DOT-required circumferential grooves to promote even wear and further the tire's slick-like performance. While the tires require minimal scuffing, heat cycling is recommended to further enhance consistency and wear. The tread compound warms up quickly and operates over a wide temperature range to provide predictable grip that is forgiving and easy to drive at the limit. The symmetric, semi-slick tread design allows the g-Force R1 to rotate in different directions and be used at different vehicle wheel positions to maximize treadlife. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by a spirally wrapped polyamide cord on top of a two-ply nylon cord carcass.

NOTE: While BFGoodrich g-Force R1 radials meet DOT requirements, they are not appropriate for highway use as the expected miles of wear from their racing tread compounds is greatly reduced. The g-Force R1 radials are not recommended for driving in wet conditions where there is the risk of hydroplaning. Drivers should drive cautiously at reduced speeds in these conditions.

If these were 225/45/17 it would have been sold already. I'm in Pasadena all the time too! Good luck. GOOD DEAL!
