Found out something today I was not aware of and had not seen it discussed on this or any other forum. Had the steer tires replaced today w/Kelly KRH 11R/22.5, dealer asked if I wanted to send the Toyo carcasses in to a retread facility. He indicated they are always looking for good load range H carcass to retread and they would pay $45-55 ea. for them.

I have a friend who works on farm and ranch equipment. He buys the large used tires and sells them to the farmers and ranchers for their off road use.

Yup, if your tires aren't too old, always ask for a casing or used tire allowance. Depending on the size some tires are worth more than others.

I got a quote from Les Schwab in Yakima for a full set of tires this past spring and they included $45 credits for each tire that could be regrooved. When you're looking at between two and three thousand dollars (or more) for a full set of tires, it isn't much - but every little bit helps!
