View Poll Results: New tires?
Tire brand is important to me. I'd rather have the money so I can select my own tires. 12 46.15%
Bald tires is a deal breaker for me. I wouldn't even consider the car. 8 30.77%
I'm posting some other suggestion within the thread. 1 3.85%
Okay, the Gaz thing was amusing for a couple weeks, maybe even a couple years.... but it's losing steam, right? 5 19.23%

Used car

Let's say you're buying a used car. Would you rather have new tires on that car or would you rather have the $500 to go select whichever brand of tires you prefer?

Poll in a moment.

I'd probably just sell it as is, and if they bring up the condition of the tires, take money off for it.

I would take the 500 and go buy Quicksurfer a lifetime supply of condoms. Of course that would leave me with $495 in change to buy tires with.

New tires. Not only do I not want the hassle of buying new tires, but bald tires also present an image of high mileage.

Bald tires show that you have neglected maintenence on your vehicle, I would wonder how long its been since you changed the oil.

Not a good 1st impression in my eyes.

I make sure a car or truck has decent to good tires on it when I sell them. I think it projects how you've taken care of the car while you've had it. I always make sure the oil is changed and pretty, the wiper blades are new or at least functional and the fluid levels are full.

I'd throw a set of tires on a car if it needed them.

Depending on how I'm using the car. may depend on what tires I get.

I would rather see the car with worn tires. The worn tires tell a story about the condition of the car. If I wanted to sell a car with chassis problems, I would put new tires on it.

Conversely, if you are trying to sell your car, you can point out that the suspension is in good shape by looking at the evenly worn tires.

That's probably a smarter approach than most people would take.

Have you considered getting a decent set of used tires? A lot of places around here sell used tires that aren't too worn, but pretty cheap. It's kind of a middle ground to all the issues.

You guys aren't making my decision any easier. Heh heh.

The tires aren't actually bald but they're within a couple thousand miles of being replaced. They are clearly in need of replacement. There are several trains of thought here. If nothing else, I'll have some reasons to explain why I chose not to replace them if that's the route I choose.

Used is an option, jsp. I'm just not sure I want to go to the trouble.

I honestly don't think the tires will be that big of an issue if the buyer finds the vehicle he wants for the right price.

It might be easiest to be open about the condition of the tires amd admit you've adjusted the price accordingly.

If they are for Xterra....negotiate it in the price to the buyer.

Most likely will want M+S will be what is needed.

unless buyer is off road freaks and will jack it up anyway with their own tires and rims etc.

Or maybe put two new ones on the left side and then park it so the right side is up against a wall.
