Unhappy Steel Wheels w/ cooper tires

I know a guy who has 4 of these, cheap. I think I still have a 5th somewhere.
Tires are 235-85-16 I think it says 16.

I have an ulterior motive, he owes me $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

The tires have plenty of tread, as far as 5.5 or 6.5 i'm not sure, but i can find out from the guy I bought my truck from, whos a member here. The picture was taken right before they came off the truck. They are in the DC area, I have no Idea what they are worth? Someone offered me $400 shipped, but that seemed a little light.

Tom,
NOt sure what size the rims are either. they came off a Saudi spec Def. 110. The size should be stamped on the wheel. Maybe if you can blow up that picture you can see it. Pretty sure the size is stamped on the face of the wheel.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but 5.5 wheels are basically worthless. They sell for about $25 each used. 6.5s are worth good money.

rims do have some value but more for the series LR set. someone with 15" rims on a SIII or late IIa would do well with this deal.

Hey,

Just trying to help here. I am in MD, and I travel often to ( Farm ) Kinsman OH via rt70 to Breezewood then take the PA Turnpike to exit 10 and then Rt60 North to Hermitage PA ( in laws house ).

If you find a Buyer in that route ( or wants to come to Kinsman OH to pick up ) , and maybe someone could drop them at my place ( or meet meet close to my place ) I will be willing to transport them for you.

The cost... you owe me a Beer

This sounds like a fun game to play...

I work in the DC area, and journey past Sykesville pretty often. (Actually I thought I may have seen you 2 weeks ago on 70 as you got off the exit for rt32)

If we wanna do this chain of hands things I can be the transport from DC to Sykesville need be.

I would double check to make sure they are not tube type wheels. That is unless you want to put tubes in them?

Those are certainly normal Defender wheels which are tube type, but you can run them tubeless..

Yes, indeed you can run them tubeless but do not drop the air pressure. The tube type wheels do not have the bead notch, (really don't know the technical term for this), on the inside of the rim, both outside and inside. It is very easy to pop a bead off if you do not run tubes in a tube type rim. I have known people who have run with out tubes and had no problems, but.....

I've been running tubeless on tube style rims for the last 14 years. On the trail I usually run 18-20 lbs, 12 or so on the beach. Only trail flat I ever had was on a RR 3-spoke alloy that I broke on a rock in the river @ Pearls Pond. Maybe I'm not trying hard enough. I know several folks that run the tubeless rims because they were getting flats. Guess what? They still get flats...of course now that I write this I will have multiple trail flats every time I go out...

It is called a safety bead. I've run tubeless on them for the last 7 years. Always at low pressure, down to 8 psi. Lots of hard wheeling. I've on only dropped one bead.

Try breaking the beads, they are fricken tight.
