Probably $4-600. To most, those tires are generally worthless as everyone hates those runflats. Really depends if you are in any hurry to get rid of them. Craigslist might get you some bites.

It seems to me the N18 is THAT much better. The N14 probably has twice the carbon buildup the N18 does despite the miles.
