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!

    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
    • Tomatoes, peppers and most other veggies can be easily grown in containers. This allows you to get your plants from the greenhouse and pot them up a week or two earlier if you have a sheltered spot for them.   Veggies can be mixed with ornamental plants in your containers and you can create some really cool landscaping. I have a ton of antique containers that I've integrated into my landscaping and they usually turn out great.
    • Probably.    What are you out if they don't grow?   Just use seeds.   No need to buy plants.   A couple bucks will get enough seeds to plant quite a few hills (plant several seeds in a group).   Or plant butternut squash and you get to eat some too.    Or Blue Hubbard...  
    •   Yes, definitely fence it if you are able. We have a large garden that we don't fence do to the size. Each year the deer do some damage but the worst is raccoons. We don't have many of them but they came through 2 years ago and destroyed our sweet corn crop. We had 4 rows, each over 50' long all gone in one night. It looked like they had a party with corn husks laying in piles all over the yard and corn cobs stripped clean everywhere. It was actually kind of comical to me but my wife was not pleased. 
    • Second the swim jig, comes through any cover nice, and if they aren't hitting the frog they will the swim jig
    • I would like to grow some pumpkins this year in the field on my hunting land in Wadena county. The ground is mostly sand. Can I dig a few holes, fill them with black dirt/compost and plant the plants in these, will they grow ok? Any advice will be appreciated.
    •   Yeah, yeah we know your the real Meat expert!  Vaseline.  
    • Never had dog.   Raw beef is tasty.  Rare steak,  carpaccio, steak tartare, Wisconsin cannibal sandwiches.   'War on Christmas' expands to 'war on cannibal sandwich' in Wisconsin December 06, 2013|By Paul Whitefield   Forget the war on Christmas; now the nanny statists have taken aim at another storied holiday tradition (at least if you live in Wisconsin): cannibalism. OK, wait, that’s not quite accurate (though it is a heck of lede). It’s actually the “cannibal sandwich” that has caught the all-seeing eye of Big Government — and it doesn’t like what it’s seeing. First, some background, for those folks who live in normal places and eat normal food — or those who are having visions of the wood-chipper scene in “Fargo” (which wasn’t even set in Wisconsin, by the way, for you geographically challenged Californians).   It seems that the “cannibal sandwich” is a popular item in areas of the upper Midwest, and especially in Wisconsin. According to the Associated Press: “The appetizer, also called ‘tiger meat,’ ‘steak tartare’ or simply ‘ground beef,’ is usually a simple dish of lean ground meat seasoned with salt and pepper on rye cocktail bread with sliced raw onion.” The AP gleaned this tidbit from one John Gurda, a “Milwaukee historian … who served it at his 1977 wedding reception” (which must’ve been one of the highlights of the season that year in Milwaukee). Oh, yes, and in case you were planning on making this at home: “Occasionally, a raw egg will be mixed with the meat.” Or, I suppose, you could throw caution completely to the winds and slap on a raw oyster or two. But it’s yummy, at least to Wisconsinites. As Keith Meyer, who runs a butcher shop in Kenosha, explained to the AP: “It’s like eating a cold hamburger that’s a little on the raw side.” Or, I’d say, it’s exactly like eating a cold hamburger that is in fact raw — then again, I’ve never had one, so what would I know? Anyway, as I started to say when I began this rant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (a.k.a. one of the nanny staters) doesn’t have the same, ahem, respect for tradition as the common cheeseheads, and it issued a warning this week about the Wisconsin fare. Seems it had found 50 cases of food-borne illness in 1972, 1978 and 1994 in the state, and in the 2012 holiday season, it linked at least four and possibly more than a dozen cases of E. Coli to the consumption of “cannibal sandwiches” in central Wisconsin. To which I say: Only 50? Only four? Heck, more people get sick eating bad cantaloupes and spinach. You’re going to deprive the good people of the upper Midwest a cherished holiday party platter because a few folks got really sick? No, I say! Rather, “Don’t tread on my bread!” Or, “You can have my cold raw hamburger sandwich when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.” I say, “If it was good enough for Grandpa Ollie, it’s good enough for (anyone silly enough to eat it)!” Or, at the very least, just give it a better name. After all, in California, we pay big bucks to eat sushi — raw fish. So maybe the Wisconsin folks should call their concoction a “sashi sandwich.” Who knows, it might be the next big thing on the Left Coast.
