with all that said i would prob list it on your craigslist equivalent(kijjj or whatever it is) for 300 obo and take no less than 225 for the set.

i do agree with fifthranger with the warranty, i also would not buy a set of used tires anymore, i drive alot and put about 25-30k on 3 different vehicles a year and i only want to buy tires once for a vehicle, but i do know of plenty of people that would jump on a set like this.

Agreed. My current tires are okay for now but I'd definitely buy this set no problem. These are great tires. All I ever use really other than Goodyear. If you sell, keep me posted.

I do agree they aren't worth as much. However, being as I just went through the experience of immediately needing 4 tires out of the blue, I can say if they were the size I needed I probably would have paid $150 - $200 for the set if they were somewhere where I could go physically check them out for myself. The fact that they are a matching set is your saving grace to sell them in this situation imo

Default Re: [Price Check] How much can I sell these tires for?

I know tires have manufacture date codes on them but I have never needed to know where they are. Find out how old they are, because we all know dealerships never lie. LOL
225/70/15s will never sell on this forum, but try craigslist because they are nice stock size tires.
Coopers are good lires and that tread pattern looks great.

yes, there's a DOT number on all tires now - for tires made after 2000 (i think) the last 2 digits are the year... and the two before them are the week of the year that the tire was made.

here's a linky
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tirete...jsp?techid=172

----------

so on that pic in the link, the tire was made on the 51st week (51) of the year 2007 (07)

----------

lol here's a better breakdown (top is size info, bottom is the DOT number breakdown)

^ Age isn't the issue rather the OP is interested in selling stock tires, and he is interested in getting our opinon. Yet, he doesn't have a gauge to determine the exact tread, and he is feeling us out.

OP, list the tires on craigslist, if you get no bites, lower the price. Rinse & repeat.

Just got the tire tread depth gauge, here's the results:

Current Tread = 9.5 / 32
Original Tread = 13.5 / 32

Current Tread / Original Tread = 70% left
