View Full Version : WTB: 285/75/16 Tire for spare

03-19-2012, 04:22 PM
I'm looking for a tire in reasonable condition to use as a spare. I'd love a BFG TA/KO but am not terribly picky as it will be a spare and not rotated into use.

Located in Colorado, Denver Metro Area.

I have a GY MTR in that size that I probably don't need anymore. It probably has about 25-30% of life left and is about 4 years old.

I'm thinking 50.00. I could send you a picture if your interested. I live in Lakewood.

Some tire stores will sell you a used tire - I picked one up at Barnsley
in Boulder for $10 plus mounting. It's a spare, so as long as it held air
I didn't care about tread.

some tire stores will give you one for free. I got two 315's going on my trailer for nothing at my local Peerless Tire. Not great shape, they were headed for the recycler, but they will rot off my trailer before the tread is gone. I just checked the date codes to be sure they were not real old.

Thanks all, picked one up on Saturday and it works well. Should have closed this thread up sooner.

Also thanks for the info on used tires at the tire shop. After this one becomes unusable I'll definitely go there for another!
