Exclamation Wanted: R13 Tubeless used tyres for cheap: Any brand any size >= 185

Title of thread sums it up.

Wanted: set of 4 - R13 Tubeless used tyres for cheap: Any brand any size >= 185

Questions? Suggestions? Leads in Bangalore?
Anyone upgrading, give me your old tubeless tyres.

Need something temporary to take me around for about 10k-12k km. (On Saving mode for set of Alloys and decent Tubeless)

This post is all because of this > :(

Well contact fellow member Fuelled, he might be switching to 15" soon on his car & would be looking to sell off his 175/70 R13 tubeless tyres. They have hardly been used but you'll have to wait for a little while (a week or two maybe) and also there would be the additional cost of the courier to Bangy.

Hi,

I will be changing my Santro Tyres Ceat Spyders in a week as well. They are 175/65/13 and have done approx 26k.

As a rule I never use my tyres below 50-60 % tread life.

You can have them for free but will have to pay for transportation from Mumbai.

Viper / Aditya,

Thanks for your generous offer to give away your decently threaded tyres for free.


Viper.. Could you let me know how much the shipping cost would be? I hate paying for shipping as its not going back to the community if you know what I mean. I would rather pay that shipping amount to some bloke in bangy for his set of used tyres. (guys dont let this statement stop you from those free offers )
Plus am looking at atleast 185s for now

Aditya, Thanks for the offer man.. really mean it. However I got really good thread on my tubed 165 bridgestones, which have only done 31k, excellent condition as lady driven.

What I want is 185 Tubeless.

Nitrous, these are the stock JK ultima's which I "slicked" on the track before chaning over to michelin's.

Hi Iron Wolf,

I think you will end up paying approx 1.5k. Also have already changed the tyres today itself to Yokohoma A539 175/60/13. In case you need them tell me by tomorrow.

Whats your budget ?

I was at Hercules Tyres in Sheshadripuram(Link Road) a couple of days back and I remember 2 sets of tyres lying there. Was traded off by some-one for a new set.
The Aceleres were 13 inchers for sure and 1 set of Yoko's (no idea on the specs).

Head there and try your luck, you never know Lady Luck mite smile at you.

Ask for Saravana(owner) and tell him that Riju sent you.

Ironwolf call for you, found a 4 months old set of Lenso 15 inchers with ES 100's lying there.

The price quoted was a steal . Pick them up if you want to.
