Lightbulb [Price Check] How much can I sell these tires for?

When I bought my truck it came with these tires and the dealership said they were pretty much new. They are Cooper Discoverer ATR A/T tires and the size is 225/70R/15.

After the weather gets warmer and I take off my studded winter tires, I am going to buy some new aftermarket XD series rims and BFGoodrich A/T tires. For that reason, I'm trying to sell these other set of Cooper tires.

I have a few questions for you guys.

1. How much tread (percentage wise) would you estimate are left on these?
2. These are originally $500 ($125 a piece). How much do you guys think I could sell the entire set for?

Here's some pictures and thanks for the help.

Stick a penny in the tread and if it still touches Lincoln's head they're still "good tires. And I'd say about $100 a piece would be fair.

Lmao, I live in Canada and we just got rid of the penny from our currency (because it costs more to manufacture than what it's worth).

Gonna need a different measuring tool.

No way would I pay $100/tire for used stock size tires that can be purchased for a little more than that + the cost of balance and mount. Also, a dealer would provide a warranty. Next, you can purchase a tire tread gauge inexpensively that accurately determines the amount of tread left. A penny only determines if the tire is street legal because it doesn't display to the tenth's. Here is what a tire tread depth gauge looks like:

Thankfully, you are selling the tires in Canada because we don't use the metric system here. My gauge displays in both metric and standard, and I know that to be street legal in most U.S. states tread has to be at least 2/32nd's. I also know that most new tires should be around 10-12/32nd's, and I don't know what the equivalent in mm's are.

I agree with kronk & michael. Even if they're in good shape, don't expect more than $250.
I wouldn't buy a used tire if I can get a new one for $25-50 more (which would also include mount, balance, and warranty).

If it helps at all, here's a dime on the treads.

A coin can not accurately measure tread, and buyers would want to know exactly how much tread were left before even wasting time to check yours out. Pay the $4 - $6 and get a gauge!

Lol ok. To be honest, I wasn't expecting more than $160 for them before I started this thread.

So, why ask $100/tire and actually expect people to take you seriously? Why not start the bidding at $80/each, and you could save yourself and others the hassle of wasting your time? Either way, you have to know the actual tread or noone in his right mind would even contact you.

Nowhere in this thread did I state I would try to sell them for $100 a tire (a ridiculous amount). I'm simply asking others what they think.

Also, I am not selling them on here, just looking for a reasonable market price in their current state.

We are trying to help, and maybe you aren't familiar with an example. I, along with others now, have told you to get a guage. What good does it do to post pictures of tires when you can't even tell the amount of good tread left? Also, most members here are American, so what is priced accordingly here will not help you up North. Stop wasting everyone's time, and do your own research instead of asking for our help and arguing with us because our answers aren't what you are looking for. Personally, I wouldn't pay anything for 4 used stock tires because they come with no warranty and no balancing and mounting. Keep them for spares or throw them on the curb at trash day.

They do look like they have a fair amount of tread..... as stated used tires are dime a dozen for 25-50 bucks mounted and balanced..... BUT with that said Its rare to walk into a used tire shop and get a full set of 4 used tires same brand and wear... that even still have those little side nubs that tires have when new.....


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.
