group buying opportunity--Rig and/OR TRUCK tires


SO... 67 views*, and no responses.. Guess that means that only I have  have old "expired" tires.

PS:  I was not doing this to get free tires (fat chance!), but just to try and lower the cost.

 

* reminds me of the old Springsteen  song, "67 channels and nothin' on"

Hey y'all, we're sitting here in the Tom Johnson "service"(as opposed to Rally) campground.

 

We're getting new tires all around, since ours are over the expiration age.

 

I already have one other couple (Bill & Bev) that expressed an interest in getting new tires.

 

can I have a quick (pm or here) show of interest in whether ANYONE else would like tires done while here?

They're being done by the owner of the local tire-shop.

Tom Johnson also has said they can mount (4 tires) on the trailer for $150, OR do a Preventative Maintenance  [PM] (replace seals, inspect bearings and breaks  for $260 [only $90 more].

I'm likely going to spring for them to do the PM on the rig, since we're here already...

 

SO Far: 13 tires at once, I'd love to get a WHOLE lot more!

If interested, I need:

  • name (first/last/screen name)
  • type of rig/size of tires  (truck or bus, and size)
  • # of tires you'd like
  • Whether you are firm, or just looking for a price.
  • (Obviously: confirm you'll be at the reunion rally!)

 

It is possible that buses may need to have tires installed at Tom Johnson, (in case too big!)

BTW, I am not doing this as one Huge purchase, but everyone would do indivdually.

More info will follow.. FEEL free to PM me, or just add info here.

I am hoping the more we buy, the better the prices.

I will also ask the gentleman from the tire store what original/list price is compared to price he offers us

SO 111 views and NO ONE else who's going to rally wants new tires?  I was hoping for 3-5 people so we would have gotten better prices.

ehh. life moves on...

 

Love and hugs.

Mitch

Just as an FYI, here are/were the tires (so far) we're scoping out

  Goodyear Unisteel G114 in a 215/75R 17.5" (Load Range "H" 4850 lbs capacity at 125 PSI)

 

 

other items: US factory, non-stale tire dates, verify before installation.

*******---> ADDED 5/11 noon! ******

so far (8 tires:  best price $395, (no shipping plus $20/tire for install/balancing)...

 The dealer said, "as these are specialty tires, they don't often discount the price"

 

We have 2 rigs (DRV's) currently going for a total of 8 tires.

the more the merrier! (and I hope the better pricing...)

 

current price is around $400 each tire (online)..

who knows, maybe my being more specific here may induce someone else ...

and we're pricing tires from local tire dealer, not TJCC
