After making your purchase of the new 2022 Toyota Tundra, you decide to splurge a little more and maybe get some mods added to it. You maybe start by getting a chrome delete then move on to a nice bed cover and maybe get a cool bull bar but then it comes time to focus on the wheels and tires. You went and bought the biggest ones you could get without needing a lift and after you changed them, you are now left with a set of 4 wheels and tires with little to no wear or tear that you want to get rid of.
Now most guys either throw them in the garage and forget about them or they shove them into storage and again, forget about them. However, you have a set of brand-new wheels and tires from a pretty expensive truck. Now I highly doubt anyone would want to buy stock wheels and tires for a brand new truck that already comes with stock wheels and tires. However, there are still a few ways to recover some cash spent on mods.
On Facebook’s 2022+ Toyota Tundra group, George Menendez asked, “For those that replaced their stock wheels and tires. Were you able to sell them? If so, how?” Now the post didn’t get a lot of traffic but I think that this is a very important question that needs to be asked because a lot of new Tundras that I am seeing on the road do have aftermarket wheels so I would think that a lot of people really need somewhere to put these or sell them. Let’s take a look and see what some of the owners said.
Jakob Dilley said, “I put my wild peaks up for sale for 6 months starting at 600. Finally sold them to a tire dealer for 200$.” Now while that is a pretty big loss, it is still cash, nonetheless. In fact, you could keep your wheels for a few more years under good conditions and maybe some teenager who bought a clapped out 2022 Tundra could buy them off you. If not, you could always go to the junkyard and sell it there.
Now in terms of materials, it’s not worth a lot of money if you think of it in terms of scrap. However, used tire shops and used auto centers would love a low mileage wheel and tire set from a new Tundra.
What do you think? What would you do with your stock wheel and tires? Let us know in the comments below.
