    I have 2 used Continentals with 7/32 tread left. These are the ContiSilent version with the foam inside, which makes for a quieter ride. No patches or plugs. Asking $450 shipped in the US obo.

    That's a pretty hard low ball, especially with shipping being at least $40-70...

    No it's not, and I'm not the guy who offered.

    New, each tire costs around $400 so a total of $800 new + shipping.

    Your own statement was that there is 7/32 tread left (not a whole lot of usability left it's less than 1/4, little more than 1/5)

    7/32 = 0.21875

    0.21875 * 800 = $175

    I'd say the $250 offer is pretty generous if you asked me.

    These tires have less then 3000 miles and come with 9/32 from the factory. Tesla recommends replacement at 3/32. So they still have at least 2/3 life left. Brand new 2 are $800 plus shipping and I'm asking $450 shipped obo.. Which realistically means I'd probably take around $350-$375 shipped based on location.

    To be clear you mean 9/32" or 7/32" correct? Units would be helpful in establishing clear communication.

    Brand new these tires have a tread depth of 9/32. The tires I'm selling are at 7/32. Recommend replacement is 3/32
