Title: Need tires in the Los Angeles area
Post by: ccbmster on March 19, 2013, 02:32:33 PM
I am in the San Dimas Glendora area of Southern California and need to find some 22.5's.  Prefer used. Anyone have a source or some you want to sell?

If Fontana is not to far for you to drive, GTS - Gonzales Tire Service  on Valley west of Hemlock. A bout a mile west of the Cherry exit off I-10.  Send me a pm with your phone number if you need more info. I am a local to so cal.

  Hi;
      Need what you need them for.  Are they needed for the tag or
      drive axels, or are you needing them for roll around tires?
      I probably have a couple of roll around tires.
                                             Merle.

Not exactly sure what you mean by a roll around tire but I assume you mean something just good enough to get by for a short time or short distance.

Either way, I have a flat on my driver side tag axle so if I can get that replaced to get me by a couple of days until I can find some decent ones that would be fine.

I've been dealing with Ray's OK Tire in El Monte for over 20 years. While you might find tires cheaper, they know truck/bus tires inside and out and won't sell you something you don't need. Call 626-442-0297 ask for Jim or Bob and tell him Tom from Freightliner sent you. Good Luck, TomC

Today I bought 2 used front tires for my 4104. They were slightly used, 14/16 tread left. Suprise my bushas 24.5 rims (my skoolie takes 11.25 tires).  Tried out a different shop than usual in Fontana. Cost out the door including: tire disposal fee, mounting and balancing 300.00 per tire for a total of $600.00. Same tires new total cost $840.00.
