There's a guy on EBAY under the alias of D208racer... I just bought some barely used 208 GP"A"s (These are DOT race tires, and not the worthless OEM 208s) from him for $142 shipped.

Used them last weekend at Jennings GP. He stated that the tires only had around 13 laps on them.

Based on the performance of the takeoffs (Which was fantastic!) I'd say that all 13 laps were in one session, I.e. one heat cycle.

I will definitely use this guy again. It cost me $20 at the track to have the takeoffs mounted/balanced by the local tire vendor, so I spent a total of $162 on a pre-scrubbed set of quality tires. I just went out there and started railing on them. Got into the 1:26s, and may have even pulled a 1:25, but the transmitter was off!

USE THIS GUY! You cannot beat that price especially when you are still new to the track thing. He has excellent feedback as well, 100% positive.

He has a rating system for his tires, make sure you figure out how he rates them before you bid, but "Cherry" or "Sweet" means that there is a lot of life left in them. I think I bought the "Cherry" set.

Below is an email thread I started with him saying how happy I was with the transaction:


I am glad you are happy with the product. As you can see I take the time to photograph the tires so YOU can see what you are getting. I hate reading someones auction discription only to find things are different in their mind than in mine when I recieve the item. Pictures tell the whole story.

Feel free to use me again. Tell your friends!

As for other products, I mostly sell Dunlop product. That is all I broker.
Frankly if you knew what I know about other products (First hand) you
would stick with Dunlop. Ever ask yourself why Dunlop gets beat up in the
press so much? It's because they ARE the leader and the others work hard to discredit Dunlop in the press. You can't argue with All those National Superbike and Supersport CHAMPIONSHIPS. Ok, I'm off my soapbox. :)

Have fun riding track days and check my auctions early.

If you want to buy again, just place a bid on any of my auctions, then email me with the auction number and ask me to end it early. I'll do it for returning customers. Resulting in you getting the tires for the opening bid. this a my return customer discount.
