Any used tire market?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have four used  Coker  760 X 15"  Bias ply tires. (3" white wall)

approx. 7.5 years old. good tread.  Used approximately 9,000 miles on my '41 Buick.

Could be used as replacements for casual driving or spare.  (Require tubes)

Any value?  any Interest? 

Just asking.

If there is an auto museum in your area they might be able to use them. They should be fine for display, and many cars of the late forties and early fifties used that size.

I would figure a person could get another 3 years out of them, maybe four. Ten years and about 12,000 miles is something I would be comfortable with. The market would be the tough part. A person who would buy used tires would be hard to get even $40 apiece out of, and then another $20 each to mount. Probably more trouble than they are worth.

 

A few years ago I had some similar tires. I gave them to a friend who sells parts and an occasional collector car. They might help him sell a car. He was happy and it was a little "back scratching" for me.

Sold many sets of tires via ebay, craigslist, AACA forum - try and you may just be surprised at results (no goldmine though).

To paraphrase the motto of a wrecking yard I used to frequent, everyone drives on used tires.

 

(think about it...)

When I replaced all six tires on my Pierce Arrow I gave them away to someone who needed some rollers for a project car.

They were very old and had hardened to point where I would not want them to be driven on by someone else.

But yours sound far more serviceable than the ones I pulled off my car.

Good luck finding a home for your used tires.
