Equinox Wheels/Tires for sale

Not mine, but I saw some 2011 Equinox wheels with tires on E-Bay for $750 shipped - I think. Seems life a fantastic deal - includes lug nuts, center caps and TPMS and shipping. Wish I had waited.

Re: Equinox Wheels/Tires for sale

Thanks for the heads up on that RIT333! I am now the proud new owner of those wheels & tires.

I'm gonna take the tires off so I can make them into dedicated snows, but hopefully the OEM tires (which are new, only three miles on them) will keep long enough that they will still be good when my current ones wear out (not sure about how the rubber will keep, need to read up on that).

Thanks again!

Re: Equinox Wheels/Tires for sale

What I do is coat the tires with a tire dressing(outside sidewall surface) and store in my basement which is at a constant temp year round. I wouldn't store in the garage because of the fluctuating temps and humidity and fumes from chemicals etc.

I'm going to wait and see how all wheel drive is this winter before deciding on whether to get snow tires or not. From past experiences my next tires will be Nokian.

You owe me a beer when you see me ! That was a fantastic deal. On storing the tires - you need to keep them away from electric motors. They give off ozone which is detrimental to rubber - so I'm told. I have 10+ year old snows on my Maxima w/o any problems. Like I said, had I not bought wheels, I would have been all over that. Great !

lol, very well! Sorry, I have not been back to the site til now, just saw your message. Got the tires jsut before thanksgiving, and I bought the snows (blizzak dm-v1) last week at Costco, they have a discoutn of $70 right now if you buy four. They arrived at my local costco today, and now I am just waiting til the next snowstorm is forecast ...

The tires that are on the wheels I bought BTW are the OEM michelins, supposedly according to tire rack they are worth around $500 alone (can't remember exact amount). They are mint, seller said they were taken off with 3 miles on car & I believe him. I'm actually gonna take of my current wheels and tires and have the snows put on that, then just mount my new wheels+tires next spring, holding onto my original (slightly worn) tires for when the ones on the wheels I bought wear out.

LOL, I've owned this car for about one month & already have three sets of tires for it!

Re: Equinox Wheels/Tires for sale

the only people who pay $$$ for OEM tires are those who dont any better.... michelins are overpriced to being with anyway....you can get WAYYYYY better tires for half of that price....

Must be a lot of stupid people in the World, because Michelin has a pretty good market share, and to find a set of tires for 1/2 their price and be better... care to recommend what tires I should be buying, then ? I'm not challenging you - just would like to be a better informed tire buyer. I usually look at price, tire wear rating, and reviews on Tirerack. Clue me in, please.

Re: Equinox Wheels/Tires for sale


you dont think theres more uniformed consumers then ther are informed ones?


when it comes to OEM tires, they are almost always better tires for the vehicle......tire companies have contracts with the makers, and they arent putting their best tire on, cause they would loose money.....so they make a decent tire, in a rare size, and charge alot....when i say decent, its hard, poor grip, above average mileage (in some case)....

look at the stock size for even the 2010...there is only 41 tires list on tirerack for the 225/65R17

yet the 245/65/R17 has 58 different tires available...

for the same price at michelins i would get something like a GY fortera triple tread...then you wouldnt have to worry about snow tires.....as they are snow rated....

for the price though i have always had great results from kumho/yokohama/hankook....

the geolanders by yoko are a great series of tire....for snow/light offroading.....we occasionally run a beefier version at/s on our work vans (10,000lb bucket vans) and get great traction in them....and they arent loud either....

yoko seems to make more of a highway tire such as the envigor....reviews are very positive, including snow surprisingly....

to each his own though.....

Re: Equinox Wheels/Tires for sale

THX - I appreciate the informed opinion. I usually look for quietness in tires, as an important trait - I hate noisy tires. The Stock Michelin Latitudes seem to fill that bill, but consequently, they make a poor winter tire. So, I bought Michelin Latitide X-Ice for the Winter tire. They are very quiet,and I have no snow-date yet.

Thx for the advice.
