Default A place to buy/ sell used tires?

ok so right now i have my summer rims and tires on my Lincoln Mark VIII, and i have the stock rims with Michelin all season tires with only a couple hundred miles on them. The car also came with two winter tires (BFgoodrich Winter Slalom) that are currently not on rims. Anyone know of a place that will buy my Michelin all seasons, or trade them for two BFgoodrich Winter slaloms? I went looking for a place in town that has the winter slaloms, and my local BJ's has eight in stock, so i was thinking i would sell my all season tires and use the money to buy two winter slaloms, but the guy told me that sometimes the tires rip while they're taking them off, and that i may not be able to sell them once they're off... Also the winter slaloms are $124 a piece, and it would be $60 to have them all installed so about $308, do you think i can get 308 for my used 225/60 R16 Michelin all seasons?

You should be fine taking them off the rim.

And yes, Craigslist is the best for local sales like that. You can always put them on Ebay also. You'll probably get more on Ebay but shipping is a pain in the arse.

Craigslist is fine. People look for all season tires in the winter, because that's when they are cheapest. usually.
