How much are my wheels and tires worth?

Post by V3rt » Tue Jun 30, 2015 5:43 pm

I am getting new wheels and tires for my 2015 Power Wagon right now and am trying to figure out how much I should try and get out of my takeoffs. I have 321 miles on them right now. I just called the dealership and they told me that replacement wheels are sold in pairs for around $2000, so $1000 per wheel?!? That seems pretty ridiculous. My new Fuel wheels were way less than that. It looks like the Wrangler Duratracs go for about $260 each. I was hoping to get $2200 for the set of four, but don't know if that is high or low now. Anybody have any idea?

I think you are more than a little optimistic. As an example, when I was looking for used tires a couple months ago for another truck, I saw several sets of Rapturd takeoffs listed on Craigslist at $1500, and they were not selling. I suspect there is more demand for Rapturd wheels/tires than there is for PW stuff. Your DuraTracs are sort of small, and the DuraTrac is not an in-demand tire. I think if you can get $1200 for the set, you will be doing extremely well. You might be better off putting good tires on the stock wheels and just selling the DuraTracs. When I was regularly buying used wheel/tire takeoffs for my GM trucks, I could typically get a fresh set of factory truck alloys with brand new tires for $400/set, once had to pay $500 for a full set.

The five take off 285/70-17 tires alone might go for $700.00 because they are a popular size for JK's and JKUR's.. Rims - nobody wants stockers unless they are needing one as a replacement or spare. Yeah, the dealer wants $660.00 each - but who buys them. Alone they might go for $150.00 each.

So, the $1200.00 for the whole enchilada might be in the ball park, but I suspect you might get more selling the tires and rims separately.
I'm just along for the ride...

I bought 4 O/E Power Wagon rim that had been used for 6 months for $400 (including the centre caps and the pressure monitors). I bought 4 brand new 315/70/17 Duratracs (in Canada---which is more expensive than the U.S) for $1250, so I would guess $500 U.S for them. If it was me I would ask $1000 for everything and take $900.

Thanks for the feedback. I ended up selling them for $1600.
