I think EastCoast put his finger on it when he called it a $4500 bus. I am assuming that I'll need 6 new shoes pronto (like before the trip home); hence my panic when I heard it had 12R's on it.
It's gone on so long, I won't feel any reluctance to walk away if we can't come to a meeting of the mind. There's no magic left here; just an appreciation for the right drivetrain and lo miles.
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.
