600 shipped a set. I run 245/645/18 and 315/680/18. I've also tried the 305/660/18 rear and did not like that size AT ALL. They last me about 3 days before I toss them. You need a lot of - camber to run these effectively. I was at -2.8 front and still killing the outer edges. Now at -3.3 and I'd say that's about right.

I'm not seeing the $100 of $400 on ebay. Is it still valid?

305 here:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/361201236894

245 look to be sold out. Check back in a month and they may be up again.

I'll bet you can guess which size I'm out of.

There are glitches to the system (Discount Tire Direct) on EBay that I can confirm. I you mess with it enough (like I did) you'll see individual tires beat out sets that won't show up in their store. You need to type in something like "discount tire direct nt 01 275/35/18." I had within the same 5min period a set for 490, a single for 190, and then no set at all. You could add as many singles as you wanted, but only 4 of the sets.
If you ask me, inconsistent or trackers are involved in general "shopping" eBay NT01 in a given size.

Exactly what I wrote mate. The price changes and isn't congruent even when looking 30min later (same set went from 490 to 549). Its now at an even 500. I bought a fair bit from them (via Ebay) the other day and over the phone in the past.

You do what you want, but I'm stating a fact about their Ebay site.

Are you in Germany? Looks like it from your location. If you're buying US product from overseas on eBay the price changes with currency fluctuations. This isn't some backdoor wizardry. The live exchange updating is so eBay/PayPal can hedge arbitrage risk.

Here's a link to the 305s I bought available at the exact same price I bought them two weeks ago ($618 USD before discount):
