One set left !!

Was'nt sure where to post this, but Airstream is clearing out some sets of tires/rims from their Pan Am series of trailers. They have them listed on Ebay for $100 + shipping for a set of 4 tires/rims .

Airstream 15" Tire Wheel Assemblies New Set of 4 Pan America 6 Lug 5 5 | eBay

This should be a link to the listing....if it does'nt work the listing Item number is
281057910028

The price is certianly right! Hell, just the rims are probably worth that. The tires are brand new, but are dated '08, whic should'nt really be a problem being stored indoors. The tires list MSRP @ $114 each...., so a set of 4, plus some fancy rims for a hundred bucks is a deal!!

Good Luck

DARN IT!! I missed the item, but I sure did add Airstream to my favorite sellers list and notifications. I won't miss it again!

Tires start to rot internally from the moment they are made. After 5 years they have reached the point that they should not be used. Having experienced a blowout on the inside rear tire of the '94 LY moho I previously had, I would not use a 5-year old tire even if it was stored in a vacuum.

Very true, but that still means $100 for a set of 4 very unusual wheels. If they would take off the tires to ship, that is still a steal...

Well, as is my luck lately.... I recieved a message from Airstream stating how they seemed to have made a mistake in the listing. Should've been listed "each" for $100 + shipping. Not 100 for a set of 4. So, of course needless to say, I'm sure they dont have the 6 tires I need!

So, do you go along with that, or are you planning on complaining to ebaY?

The set sold for $414.99. Looks like the mothership fetched the desired price after all.
