Exactly. The problem arises with the potential liability of having someone driving around in a pre/non-production vehicle. I am sure they could have been sold with contractual terms outlined for off-road use only, but perhaps they didn't even want to take that risk.

At the Formula D event, the teams give away the used tires, but not before they drill large holes in the sidewalls. This is to prevent any frugal grassroots drifters from mounting the used tires on their own cars and suddenly becoming litigious when the tire blows out and the car flips.
