how much those winter tyres -used

Hi

Never sold winter tyres before and have no idea how much it worth. I have four winter tyres with rim on it for around 4 years, the size is 215/60r16 for my Ford Taurus. Since I bought a new van, so I want to sell those winter tyres. How much should I charge?

The brand is "Gislaved"

Thanks

Never heard of the brand. What kind of rims? Steelies? How much tread left on tires?

Not an expert but I'd say probably ask $40 a rim and $50 a tire assuming they were cheapo $100 / tire new and had at least 50% life (6-7/32nds). To add value you may want to put like a nickel or something in the tread and take a picture from an angle that looks good / find a tread depth indicator. Try and settle on a final price of $250-300. Used tires will be expected to sell highly depreciated.

You should probably also google bolt pattern and offset for your Taurus and include that. As only certain cars will be able to use those rims

Without getting into the debate about used tires and safety etc., I just wanted to chime in about Gislaved tires or "tyres". Gislaved started out in Sweden more than 100 years ago and is now a part of Continental. Not a cheapo tire.

The above pictured tire is a Gislaved Nord*Frost 5 and I have happily run the same on a GTI for the past six(!) winters in size 205/55R16 over 46,505 km and I am kind of sad to possibly not use them for this upcoming seventh winter as they are still in good shape, both tread depth-wise and rubber condition-wise. But I shouldn't gamble with safety, especially when the deals are on now for winter tires.

Good luck with sale from this very satisfied Gislaved customer.

Thanks for the info, had not heard of them before. If you've paid $150 tire new OP I guess you can ask for another $100 or so
