No doubt, rubbers aren't cheap. There was one time I came this close to acquiring a worn-out left-rear from a Ferrari Enzo. I happened to be in downtown Salt Lake City when I saw that car being driven on the streets, right into the dealer service area--so I parked, told my girlfriend to walk home,* and went up to the sidewalk in front of the garage. For an hour, I lurked outside while they fiddled with that car, raising the engine hood, tuning it and testing it while making the most glorious noise, and fitting new tires. I actually had the nerve to approach Mr. Losee and offer to buy one of the old now-slick tires. He politely declined, citing availability, and I thanked him anyway for driving the balls out of such a rare machine. Less than 350 were ever made.
* no, not really, of course I would never be rude to a female. I called her a taxi.
Oh, right, I'm being told Ferrari built an additional fifty after demand for the Enzo far-surpassed the original production plan of only 349 units.
