Greetings Dave

Depends what you are replacing with what. Ascertain the new price of both tyres from your friendly tyre place. Expect to get around 50% of the price of the new, unused tyres OEM fitted to you vehicle, and work from there. Make an allowance for fitting and balancing. Also realise that you are replacing new (OEM) tyres for a reason and so are others. The ability to onsell the second hand tyre (even though it is new) may be limited.

Thats not a bad price. I would go for five. I have done this, I rotate all 5 tyres every 15,000 klm.

When I bought my Jerry Can, I traded 5 new tyres as fitted from new and got $70 each. The changeover for 5 new Toyo Opats (A/T's) was $700.

How come that the 5th tyre will cost you an extra $100.00? 4 @ $ 600.00 = $150.00 ea . 5 for $ 850.00 does not add up. Regards G.T.

As a comparison, I traded my standard GU tyres for 285/75R16 Cooper ST's for $600 for 5 when I picked it up. It was thru Richards Tyre Power, not the dealer, as the dealer would not go up a size (265/70R16 standard) as well as wanting $850. I thought I would have got a better price from the dealer considering they were making a buck or three from the vehicle, but not so.
