Are those sizes right? 225 front AND rear?
I will have to go to the track and check. As I posted the sizes something didn't look right to be either. The fronts may be 205 or the rears 245. I'll have to check to make sure.

What is the date code for the tires?
I don't recall. They have been in heated storage. I'm thinking they are 07. They look fine and under their intended application should be fine.

First $600 plus shipping gets them.

They are just taking up space!

I checked the sizes yesterday and 225 is correct front and rear and there are cars using these size tires. Fit on LSS wheels.

A small one (6mm) might be needed. My car has been lowered quite a bit and I am also using RAC Monolites which are 1/2" wider than the stock wheel. When we originally put them on to check for fit, the tire just started to touch the plastic wheel well liner at full lock. Unless you are at full lock it wasn't a problem without the shim. With the wider wheel and lowered car it's hard to say, but a small spacer would take care of it either way, it was just barely scraping at best. I never used them as we did road racing and used the R6 tires. It really wouldn't have been a problem with them, your are rarely at full lock on a road course. My guess is the wheel well liner would give under pressure. A cheap remedy would be to install the wheel spacer and be done with it.

Do you need a spacer to run P225 x 50 ZR 16 R35 at front?

What offset were the RAC Monolites?

Free bump. BTW all of these tires have the same diameter, however, the 225/50-16's are wider than the 225/45-17 by a little bit. The 16" tires would be perfect for rears for someone with 16x8 wheels. You might try selling these tires in seperate pairs here and elsewhere.
