Selling Tires

Hi all,

After 6 months on order, the new 200 series (GX) will finally be delivered in the next week or so. Not happy with the tires supplied with the car, so I am putting a set of Bridgestone D697 Duellers on it. Which leaves me with a set (5) of Dunlop A22 Grandtrek tires, pretty much unused.

Has anyone had any luck selling tires? If so, how?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

You could try the exploroz classifieds, local newspaper, ebay, gumtree (or similar). They all work.

Cheers

Will the company you are buying the Duelers through give you a trade in on the tyres? They are not that bad a tyre. We took ours on the beach and across gibber country and had no issues. Just did not get much wear out of them. Now have the Duelers! Kevin

G'day,
As someone has said you should be able to trade them in at the tyre dealer that supplies the new tyres to you.

More often than not I buy used tyres (well barely used) from the tyre dealers for my Hilux. I have been told that these tyres are from owners like yourself that get a new vehicle & don't like the wheel/tyre combination on their new vehicle.
Cheers

Hi
I too bought a GX 200 and changed tyres before pick up. I just traded the tyres in on the new ones. ( cooper LT AT3) This way i was not trying to sell used tyres. It was made easy having the tyre dealer next to the dealership.

The AT22 really is a great trye, unless you are doing a lot of mud.

They handle beach and inland sand very well, as well as general outback raods/ tracks.
Only high country mud / snow type of 4wdn will not be all that good on them.

They wear very well and have a strong sidewall / carcass.

It may be hard to sell all at once.
I purchased 1 brand new from someone who chnaged all his tyres ....so I could have a second spare...there are some who may be interested in buying 1. I paid $100 for mine and it had never been used.

I have ordered a 2013 built Sahara and have arranged to sell the original tyres and replace with Coopers AT3 for a change over for total of $1500, which I am happy with.

Well we always ran BFG's then Micky's. Never went with standard tyres on our 4 wheel drives. Well we just did nearly 6000km mostly black top with the 200 on standard supplied tyres towing 3ton. Couple of them days hit over 43 god knows how hot they got. They went fantastic in soft sand. Wouldnt rely on them too much on stony bush tracks but surprised me all the same. A heck of a lot of people are going with Bridgestone lately. Cant decide what to get.

Call me pety but why are you spelling tyres tires?

Fairly sure this is Australia where they spell tyres tyres.

That's all.

Thanks for the advice on how to sell my tires / tyres. I am certain that this is Australia, but I am from the part where we don't have as much time on our hands as you obviously do.

Also, I believe the correct spelling is "petty".

That's all.
