Default Value of used tires

Seems I read about some new tire buyers getting something for their take-offs. My tires are 5 years old but look great with about 20k. I want to replace them, but are there any tips to get something for the 6 old 12R22.5 tires? TIA

Buy a full set, they'll probably give you $50/75 bucks a tire. I usually get more but do a lot of business with my tire dealer.

Check with your local dirt/gravel haulers. I get $100 each for them with these guys.

I sold 8 off of Blue Thunder for 100.00 each. Different year dates. Some were at least 10 years old. Some were just 5 years old. I think guy put them on a dump truck.

Sell on Craigslist.
Price at $120 / tire and negotiate.
I sold 8 for $700 recently. They were 5 or 6 years old.
Buyer operated a small party bus company.
I did contact my local garbage pickup but they didn’t follow through.

I would rather have a 6 year old virgin tire on my truck rather than a 10 to 15 year old carcass with a new cap. I could only use highway tread on the fronts with my dump truck (And drop axle)
