Embattled MTV reality star Mike 'the Situation' Sorrentino is selling off the custom tyres from his Ferrari as he battles allegations of tax fraud.

The former Jersey Shore regular has pleaded not guilty to charges he filed fraudulent paperwork to hide his debts and $9 million (£5.625 million) in earnings from America's Internal Revenue Service over the last three years.

However, it appears he is in need of a little extra cash after placing the four tyres and their matching 21-inch rims from his sports car on eBay.com.

The listing, which features a photo of Sorrentino standing beside his pricey car, had attracted bids of over $4,000 (£2,500) as Wenn went to press.

The sale ends on Monday (08Dec14).
