Orphan Tire - How to resell

One of my Michelin XRV 255/80/22.5 tires failed and had to be replaced using roadside assistance. Predictably, no XRV's were available so I had to let them mount a compatible replacement XZE tire. That was ten days ago.

Today, I bit the bullet and replaced all six tires with new XRVs. I thought about going all XZEs and thought about putting XZEs just on the front axel but decided I wanted to stick with XRVs.

Does anybody have any ideas on how I can get rid of the XZE? The tire place didn't want it (of course), I don't want it, but it's practically a brand new tire and should be worth something.

I have resold multiple sets of used tires via Craigslist. Truckers will readily pick them up for trailer use. Your tire is nearly new and would have wider appeal.

Put it on Craigslist at a reasonable price and it will sell.
