Jeep Tire and Wheel Resell

I just got brand new tires and wheels for my 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Anyone know the best way to sell my "old" tires and wheels?

They have exactly 220 miles on them. lol

Thanks in advance.

Depending on which model they are (several different wheel/tire combos came on Wranglers), they may sell quickly on your local craigslist or through forum classifieds. If they are base Sport wheels and OEM tires, they may take a while to move to the right customer even if you drop the price down. If they are Rubicon wheels, they should move pretty quickly. Sahara wheels may be an upgrade for a Sport owner. Special edition wheels? Desirability will vary.

^^ in another five posts, you'll be able to list them here also

Thanks in advance.

Facebook marketplace? OfferUp? I was able to sell my OEM ones with 2500 miles on OfferUp quickly.

A month ago I sold my month-old Recon tires and wheels for $1,000 and springs and shocks for $200 through Craigslist. Last night someone picked up my textured black fenders for $50. And I live in a small town of 85,000 people.

I have sold Rubicon and Sahara tires and wheels over the years: Rubicon wheels and tires usually fetch between $1,000 and $1,100, with Hard Rock and Recon on the higher end of that; Sahara between $400 and $500.

If you are referring to a small puddle on the ground towards the center of the Jeep, that’s likely the AC condensation drain.

When Jeeps leak, they leak inside not outside...

I just bought some Sahara wheel and tire take-offs with very low mileage for $200. The seller was getting desperate because he had been trying to sell for well over a month. Most tire/wheel combos were asking near $1000 but it was clear there weren't many takers at that price point.

Wheels & Tires GOOD LUCK

Have 4 wheels JKU Sport on Craigslist along with the 16 other people selling.
Good Luck. Checking Scrap Metal dealers.. might get 50 cents per pound; I don't need the yard Art.

Where are you located and what size tires? My 2010 needs tires so I have been looking. Find a lot of wheel and tire combinations but that boosts the price and my rims are fine. Currently has 255/R7517's. I found a local guy selling 4 but when I checked a local tire store they won't mount and balance used tires. Maybe a gas station will. New I'm looking at $800 minimum for the Wrangler SR A's.

I don’t think of them as suckers. A set of new tires cost anywhere between $800 and $1,500. Why wouldn’t anyone jump on the chance to get a perfectly good set of wheels and tires for $500-$1,000? Over the years I’ve had a mix of older JK, TJ and Grand Cherokee owners buy them and leave very happy.

Condition matters. There are plenty of used wheels and tires listings out there. Those with less than 3,000 miles sell right away; 6,000+ miles will sit a little longer; 10,000+ miles even longer. So if you plan to replace your stock wheels and tires, you are better off doing it right away.

I also see Craigslist listings without photos; others show filthy wheels and tires. If we don’t show some pride in what we are selling, shoppers won’t show interest.

I'm sure you don't think of them as suckers, but they are. they probably just don't know any better, but location is important and dictates price for non-shippable items. Here in Texas there are tons of people selling recon wheels and rubicon wheels/tires for $400-$500 and sahara wheels and tires can be had for $150-$200.

I'm not saying these stock wheels and tires shouldn't be worth more, but here, you can get them for dirt cheap, any day of the week.

Call them what you want. That’s your prerogative.

I sold my five WW wheels and KM tires for $750. Threw in the springs and shocks for free because I would feel bad about throwing them in the trash.

true that. I'm glad you got that much. I'd be doing back flips if I found someone down here in Texas that would pay that much. enjoy it!

I sold my set of sahara wheels and tires with less than 500 miles without tpms for $475 in socal. Also sold my stock side steps for $175 to the same person. I priced mine about $150 less than other similar listings on craigslist. Buyers are out there if they are priced right. Id rather have the cash for other mods than have 5 tires rotting in my backyard that I’ll never use again.

One last question, upgraded to 33 inch tires and now my check air pressure light is on. Is that going to always be on or is something wrong?

There should be a PSI threshold printed on the driver side door jam —37 PSI on pre-2014; 35 PSI on 2014+ JKs.

Assuming they mounted a TPMS on each wheel with the new tires, the TPMS will issue a blinking warning every time a tire’s PSI is below that threshold.

You can check each individual tire’s PSI by scrolling through your EVIC with the button on the left spoke of your steering wheel.

PS - I also use the EVIC for airing up after a day on the trail.

Sounds like whoever mounted them forgot or didnt care to use your stock tpms.

Hi Matt,

The JK utilizes an auto re-learn TPMS system so the new sensors that were installed will automatically sync themselves. Just be sure the tires are inflated to the 35 PSI (including the spare) and drive the vehicle at highway speeds for at least 20 minutes

Depends on location too. Before I even got my new jeep home I found a set of 5 stock wheels with the KO'2s listed below from a winter edition with zero miles on them for $900.00. When I went to the dealer to pick them up they had several people wanting to buy them, one guy offered me $1000.00 for them before I left. I listed my stock sport steelies with the goodyears on them on Craigslist for $350.00. They were sold the first day and I received a few other emails about them before I got the listing down. In my neck of the woods there are tons of Wranglers out there being used for mail trucks. The typically don't want bigger wheels and tires as it gets them too high on the mail boxes. They will buy them up, I think when I checked the stock tires where just over $115.00 each so getting a set of 5 for around $300-$400 is still a good deal for them.

Probably because of your location, because here on the East coast, you might get half of what your telling us, maybe...
