What are our take off tires worth?

After having a front tire blow out on our Essex returning from Alaska in 2914 we just purchased 8 Michelin for our 18 LA. Used the the FMCA tire program but still cost over 8K out the door. Asked if Pete's Tire would give us anything for our take offs and said they weren't interested and in fact they were going to charge us 112$ if we left them there. Knew the tires worth something so we picked them up to save 112$ right away. Ran a add on Craig's List and in less then one day got 850$. Our take off tires are worth a lot more then the truck tire companies are saying. Might at least get the mounting and balance for your take off tires.

Tire shops are not interested in dealing with used tires. Especially since we usually change them for age and not miles.

Farmers and dump truck guys eat them up. $100 tires for these guys are a steal.

I just sold my used Michelin 315/80/22.5 tires from my 2014 MADP for $215 each on E-bay to a trucking company for use on 18 wheeler trailers.

Happy Trails

I’ve pulled many trailers with tires not matching and sometimes not even the same size. I posted about it on a tire pressure thread and some thought I was crazy.

Did you have to ship them or did they pick them up?

Nearly every type of ‘national chain’ name brand tire store, are not interested in ‘trade in’ of most sized tires. You may get a ‘credit’ when dealing with semi truck sizes. I don’t know of any name brand chain that will sell used tires to the public.

I am glade that you were able to sell your "old tires".
But why did you replace your tires if they were only 4 or 5 years old?
Did they have obvious defects?
Manufactures typically believe their tires have a "life" of 7-9 years?

Great idea. Another poster got $225 each on e-Bay. Wow! I am wondering how often that happens. Maybe they paid for shipping.

I'd start to advertise more than a week ahead and include a statement about when they would be available. I would think anyone that would be interested would be open to negotiated availability. A farmer, trucker etc is likely purchasing in advance vs waiting to be stuck and needing a tire immediately.
I advertised a month ahead on CList but got no local interest.

My local tire shop use to buy our old tires but they also operated a retread shop for semi trailer tires. They have since discontinued retreading but still operate a "truck shop" where they sell and install tires. They said they'd keep my tires to sell but won't pay me for them. I went to our local truck stop and put a note on the bulletin board advertising them and had 5 calls within the first day. I only got $100 each but I wasn't overly concerned. I had an uncle that was a long haul trucker and knew he had bought tires that way. As my Grand dad use to say, "There's more than one way to skin a cat".

The Gators are from recapped tires. Unlikely these used tires would ever see recapping due to age.
