I have a set of Pirelli Diablo Supersport Street tires
$170 per set (plus shipping)
question about tire life came up, and how long they are good for if they are stored - this is what i got from Pirelli people about tire life:
If they were in a temperature controlled environment, away from moisture, petroleum products, ozone from engine, machine exhaust, etc. they should be fine...
was also recommended i got by a tire dealer and have them inspect in person, will be doing that and will update here my finding then
went by pirelli dealer, they inspected the tires and said there is zero visible issues with the tires and that they would use without any problem. one set is 07, one 08, got them around 2010, weird - got them at the same time, but again, dude said, as the pirelli guy, as long as tires are stored out of the way of the elements, sun and the like, tires will be good...
also went by UPS store and USPS, to canada, shipping is around $110 for UPS and around $80 to florida for UPS, assume that will be the ball park price for most lower 48. (as to the regular post office, prices are around $80 to canada, and around $40 to florida).
here are some additional pics i took today, tires are dirty since they were sitting all this time but whatever...
