Just about any auto junkyard may take the wheels for a few bucks. However, they are reluctant to buy aged tires. These days it is not recommended using tires over 6 years old regardless of the condition, even if they have never been used. The date is stamped on the side in code.

I was considering selling a set of 16" wheels from my old Mark VIII for scrap alloy value for about $65, until they sold on cl for $100.

I don't know the places by name, but I do know of quite a few by location. Most places that sell used tires and rims buy them from customers as well. Usually, when they buy, they buy at wholesale (then resell the stuff at market used prices). I don't have a problem with accepting a fair wholesale offer. I just want quick cash, not "the most" cash possible.

This has very little to do with the thread question, but I'll answer it anyways. The value of a V6 1999 Ford Mustang Coupe with 124,000 miles on it is anywhere between $4,700 and $5,500. The new wheels and tires I bought were $778 total. If I can get $100 back for the old wheels and tires, I'll be a happy camper.

FWIW, this is a teenager's car ya know (ie, VERY expensive insurance). I wanted him to have a nice ride, but at the same time a cheap nice ride for insurance reasons. I personally drive a 2011 vehicle with less than 3,000 miles on it, but I certainly will not put a 17 year old in something that new. Get it?

Thanks for the answer!
When my kids are at driving age, I'll keep them away from a sports car and get them an old van (or what ever slow vehicle that has lowest insurance rate)...

There's a salvage yard in Rock Hill that might take them. If not list them on craigslist.
