What's a fair price for these tires and wheels?

6 posts in this topic

Bought a used boat last year on which the prev. owner had put 13" tires on a trailer that was supposed to have 12" on it.  VERY little clearance betw. tires and fenders.  So I called ShorLander and they were not too thrilled by those 13" tires and told me to go back to 5.30x12", which I did, both new wheels and tires.  So I have these 2 tires and mod looking  white wheels that he said were only 2 yrs. old with few miles on them, which I could believe.  But, the size is one that is not easy to find(A78-13ST or ST-165/80D13).  Said he bought them at CENEX in Hutchinson, MN.  I am just wondering what a fair price would be for these?  They do appear to be in good shape.  I can't seem to find that size listed anywhere so I was hoping that one of you astute tire folks could give me some insight.  Just don't want to get hosed by selling them too cheap, but want to sell them soon.  figure, if nothing else, they might make good spares for someone with similar, close size tires.

Thanks for any help.

How about a call to CENEX of Hutchinson MN.  Perhaps they could tell you more about these wheels and tires....Like the price.  

Just for fun I looked at Northern Tool's sight to check.  Looks like a wheel and tire, 13 inch, is in the ballpark of $100 brand new.  Some a little less, some a little more.  Here is a link...

Bass Pro was a little more, Cabelas more like northern, depending on how fancy the rimz are.

Depends a lot on the tires. If they're the ones that come from places like Northern, walmart, etc, they're not worth much. (Loadmaster's, Carlisles, etc.)  Lot of junk trailer tires out there. If they are a good name brand radial, makes a big difference. As far as the wheels, if they are the white spoked ones, those go for about $40 each. Honest going rate would be $100 tops for both, $80 fair price IMO, and I've been in this stuff for a long time. Good luck!

Thanks, Del and Rebel, for your input.  Reason I didn't call Hutch Cenex was because I had just spent another afternoon/evening on hold with calls to 2 cust. service centers, on unrelated matters, waiting and waiting, but hanging on 'cause they kept telling me how important my call was to them!  .  Guess I was just phoned out. Think I will put a price of $60.00 for the pair and see what happens.  Seems fair, since that's about the cost of the wheels alone.

Enjoy the beautiful weather!

    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
