- What to do with part worn car tyre?
I have a Continental ContiSportContact 5 MO 225/45 R17 tyre with minimal wear, what can I do with it?
Needed a new tyre due to side wall damage. The car had 3 Dunlop tyres (one damaged) and the Continental tyre. Decided to replace 2 tyres so all are the same. I kept the Continental tyre as it’s less than a year old and is a decent tyre. I could sell it on eBay but I’m now not sure on the liability of doing that. Would a dealer in part worns buy it off me?Posted 4 months agokormoranMember
I’ve sold part worn tyres on gumtree, provided they are in good condition and legal. I had an otherwise fine tyre that had a puncture repaired – that I put on gumtree for free. Guy took it, quite happy but I wasn’t prepared to accept money for it.
There are umpteen part worn tyres on gummers at any given time IME. Mine were an slightly unusual size so took a while to go. If I had more room I may well have kept them as I wasn’t looking for a lot of money
Or you could stick it on your spare wheel, assuming it’s better than the existing spare?Posted 4 months agodmortsSubscriber
Unfortunately I reckon a tyre is probably one of the worst enclosures for a loudspeaker! The sheep swing on the other hand … I have rope, hmm
I looked up the part worn regs, business or not I think everyone has to comply.
Supply of part-worn tyres
7.—(1) Subject to Part III of these Regulations, no person shall supply—
The tyre does meet the requirements though, bar me writing “part worn” on itPosted 4 months ago
