Default Re: Spare tyre for sale

Would like to sell the spare tyre before Thursday this week.

Replace the Toyo to match with the rest of the tyres fitted to the car.

Apparently Concours Judges take off points if the spare tyre is different to the rest of the tyres fitted to the car is that right?

Selling a second hand tyre is not an easy task.
Yes, judges will probably deduct points for an odd tyre.

Brian

Tyre has only ever been on the car once.

Tyre still smells new that 'new rubber', smell.

Do not want to lose points either.

Thumbs down Re: Spare tyre for sale

Yes Brian,
selling anything Second Hand is an exercise in wasted time and frustration. I still have all my near new Motor Cycle Protective Clothing etc., etc.
I'll probably end up just dumping the lot. Even some new parts. What a waste.
The market place has spoken

Hi Sean I agree after selling my bike this year I ended up giving my gear away. After trying for 3 months to sell it.

Two spare tyres Brian never heard of doing that before?

Obviously no buyers for the spare tyre we could negotiate on the price a little.

Clearly no buyers?

Just keep the Toyo as a spare in the garage pumped up of course and out of the weather.

Unfortunately as Brian said Tim. Most people will not buy second hand even almost new. Wrecking yards cant even sell them even at $30 .

I have seen second hand tyres at the wreckers for $30 I would not fit the tyre onto my trailer they look bald and dangerous!


Toyo to good to throw out hang onto it too easy.

Fitting the new spare tomorrow morning at JAX's.

Sometimes dealer will trade in old tyres in good condition. Maybe $10 trade in? At least ask...

Thanks for the advice Brian I will speak to JAX's about that tomorrow.

I know the Manager at JAX's quite well, he might be able to negotiate a trade-in price for the tyre.

Don't expect much Tim. Just keep the tyre would be easier.

Can't see JAX's offering a trade-in for the tyre but I will ask when I see the Manager today.

Does not worry me if JAX does not offer a trade-in that's cool.
