As advertised at 4 wheels parts
your wheels $200x5=$1000
your tires $170x5=$850
$1850 to buy them new and you want $1600 used? When buying used parts, most people, including myself, pay 1/2 price of what a new part would cost. Maybe I'm wrong. Good luck.

What you are forgetting is the mounting and balancing cost. I was also going to include shipping that price. I would burn the tires before I sold them for $900.

Sting 05-11-2007 07:06 AM

Oh and by the way they have less that 100 miles on them. I mounted them and found out they are too much for as a daily driver.

need a match?

Sting 05-11-2007 10:13 AM

I might. Man, I didn't think I would catch this much crap. Sorry I posted.

Mike001 05-11-2007 10:18 AM

Its OK I would try EBay though or Craigslist you'd have a lot better luck. Cause thats a pretty high price or just return them and trade them out. With less than a 100 mile on them the should trade em out for you.

Ya bro, I dont think you got the right audience for 1600 17" wheels here BUT that isnt how we are. never feel bad posting here,these are the most friendly peeps on the net.

As suggested,try ebay, craigs list, or your local newspaper. The tire store MAY let you return em at 100mi.

Sting 05-11-2007 11:52 AM

Thanks,
I was planning on trying ebay or craigslist next. I figured I would try the forum first since they are made for the JK. I cannot return them since I had them mounted by 4 wheel parts. They don't accept returns for those. Does everyone think I need to sell these at $900.00?I mean I can see if they had some miles on them but that seems kinda low.

Try going to a local tire shop like Discount Tire or something you should get top dollar on a trade for them. I'vs had tires I pu 50 -60 miles on and then stopped likin them so I traded them in got full price back and some new ones.

Sting 05-11-2007 12:44 PM

Unfortunately I bought them online a 4 wheel parts. So I don't think another dealer will take them in trade.

stainless 05-11-2007 01:29 PM

I think they are worth whatever someone is willing to pay...no more, no less. I don't think $900 is a lowball offer, but that's easy for me to say since I didn't pay full price for them in the first place.

That said, there is someone out there that will pay full price (or close to it) for what you've got. You have to find that person, and eBay is gonna reach more people than just about any other listing. Craigslist will save you lots of hassle on shipping, but won't reach as many eyes.

Good luck with the sale.

Joe Dirt 05-11-2007 05:13 PM

I wasn't trying to bust your balls. Just help out. Sorry if i came off bad. Try your local 4x4 shop. Mine has a bulletin board for used stuff. You'll save a ton on shipping and you and the buyer will both be happy. Good luck.
