I know the coaches I drove 20 years ago had 12Rs on them. I don't know what they cost, however. Can those with 12Rs on their rigs share their cost?

I get it. My communications with him were strange.

Ever watch the show "Gas Monkey" ? "Hmmm... Pretty rough... This is gonna cost $$, that is gonna cost $$... I think $7500 would be a great price if I this and that didn't need replacement."

Then you count 50 - $100 bills out on the table.

It has worked for me when I felt like the seller was a little too proud of their vehicle. The big stack of Benji's does affect some people's decision making process.

Been a while since I put a set on a bus. I think that I ran 11R24.5's on my last bus. I put 6 on it while on a road trip. Long story but I was limping down I-40 with 2 flats looking for a tire shop. I expected to get raped. Instead I put 6 pretty new Yokohama's for about $1800 installed.

The 22.5 Toyo's on my truck were just a bit more.

I'd be all over this if I needed a bus!

There are three of them. All clean with LOW mileage and maintenance records.

These are three really nice buses for conversion, especially if you're look for a 40ish foot rig.

Any idea if these are DT466e or MaxxFarce?
