What to do?

Looking for suggestions on best way to get rid of stock 17" tires and rims that came on our truck? Ebay? or just locally in paper? .. Being replaced with Mickey's this weekend so will not need them, but have less than 700 miles on them,Also would like to know ballpark of what to put them in for. Think I saw on site here where the tires were about 80.00 a piece. Once again thanks for info!

You can place a post on our "For Sale" thread, as well as eBay. Local paper advertsing costs too much money (in my opinion). The price should be based on the "wear & tear" of the tires, and the mileage. I think they're close to brand new (if I remember our conversation correctly) so I'd ask $100 a piece for the tire and rim package.

real quick you might think about what kind of wheel you are getting before you sell your 17s. 20s are are hard to get alignments on and they are not cheap if you do find a place. 22s are out of the questions as of now. i would think about keeping for that reason. just my .02 cents

If the rims are the chrome mag style then they are quite expensive through Dodge. I know, I had to replace one on my 03 Ram( insurance but I know how much it was ). $100 for rim and tire is CHEAP! You should be able to get a lot more than that. If they are regular painted rims then that is about right.

Best bet is to go to the local dealer and find out what it would cost to replace one. Then ask for approx 85% of that and you are set. Even with just 700 miles they are used and you will not get brand new price. You will get close to it though if you are patient.

E-Bay is a possibility but with shipping you can't get as much for the rims and tires as you should be able to. Better to find a local free/commission want ad/for sale type magazine. Most places have them. Usually the commission fee is not too bad if they ask for a fee.

Another good way to sell them is to visit local body shops and let them know you have a set to sell. You would be surprised at how fast they can go this time of year!

They are the painted ones not the chrome ones NH so bout 100 bux should be right.. Thanx for the body shop idea never thought of that! There are quite a few of those around here..
