18” winter wheel and tire set (Niche)

I have a set of Niche wheels with snow specific tires purchased for winter use on my P3+. J8x18 (5x114.3 bolt pattern) Used for less than 8 months total through two seasons. Lots of tread still on them.
I bought them because I didn’t want to deal with tire swaps for the OEM 20”. It’s a lot easier to switch between two sets of wheels and tires than to schedule a tire swap for the one set of wheels.
Summer ‘21 I purchased the Zero G wheels so I now have the two sets of 20” wheels I planned to purchase so I would have one set of 20’s with summer tires and one set of 20’s with winter tires.
On the plus side our winters aren’t anywhere near as bad as the winters experienced in Utah or Illinois where I grew up. These are by the way UHP tires. I went through three different types of tires before finding a set that didn’t make autopilot seem like a drunk driver or a teenager with their learners permit trying to figure out how to remain in the center of the lane.

$1000

Congrats on the zero Gs! I’m looking for a set myself, how much did you pay if you don’t mind me asking, if you’re willing to ship I’m def interested in your winter set
Paid $750/wheel but I wanted them oh so badly 🤓🤘 and they look awesome on my P3.

Vancouver??? Probably Canada… I can’t be THAT lucky that you’re talking about Vancouver, WA 😅 which is very close to me.

Do you have any pictures of current condition and/or perhaps a tread depth gauge for the average remaining tread depth? Thanks
I don’t have a tread depth gauge but here are the tires in their current condition.

Are these 64.1mm center bore or do they require a hub centric ring? Also what is the offset? The offset looks good on your P3 just curious. Thanks
They are +40 (surprised me when I saw that 😅) and the bore looks to be 72.56.
When having the wheels swapped from season to season no one has placed any kind of ring for the wheels either on the vehicle or in a bag when removing the wheels between seasons.

Since I see that you’re in WA, I’m in the Olympia area. If you’re close enough and would like to see them we can make that happen.
