I have a set of 4 winter tires to an 1998 ford escort. They are very lightly used.
My question is. Is there anywhere besides e bay or Craig's list, that will buy old tires here in Memphis.

Thanks

If they're more than about 5 or 6 years old, they're dangerous to drive on anyway. Even if they look new, the rubber had deteriorated significantly and they can fail unexpectedly. People with collector cars that are lightly driven face this same issue.

There's not much market in this area for winter tires....since we don't have a winter

I recently paid $30.00 (including mounting) for a well used tire. It was too much but my other tire was severly dry rotted. I could of had a blow out at anytime. Your best bet is to put a used tires ad on craigs list. Old tires dry rot quickly. If i did alot of driving especially freeway then i would of bought new. A new tire for my car (P20575R15) costs around $80.00 (tire, tax, ca tire fee, mount & balance). New tires are expensive. The price includes me taking my old tire otherwise add $2.00 per tire.
