STU 1300 Plus-15 Paddles on Douglas Wheels

Post by DeMinimis » Thu Apr 21, 2016 1:39 pm

One tire has a rock scab. It is cosmetic only. Both tires still have bits of the casting nubbins at the edge of the paddles. Wheels pretty doinked up (but it's sand and, well, you just can't tell). Small crack at lip of one wheel that you should be able to easily weld up. If buying these new (and these are not, not at all), it would run more than $1k. Shipping to CA or AZ will be $60 (probably more, but we'll just call it $60). You will not be the belle of the ball with these, but they work and work well. $400 seems reasonable I think. I will remount the one bead in the below pic (was going to remove the tire and weld the crack, but I don't have a tire breaker big enough to break the rear bead). One could demount both and swap them around so you don't have to see the scab. Just a thought. Specs, prices, etc., on Kartek's website. Thanks.

Shipping to Okla would be One Million Dollars.

Wheels are 12" w/ min back spacing. The one wheel is beat to hell. Two cracks at the rim, not one. Have it repaired, run a tube, or it will make a nice planter. Tires are $370ea new. Wheels are around $200 new (Pac Customs or less through Kartek). Wheel repairs seem to run around $100 or so. Not sue how much to just have OMF convert the to beadlocks. Tubes around $32 (the easy fix). Let's make it $350 + $60 to ship. That's less than just one new tire. Here's the bad one.

Need to start funding new desert tires for my build. Let's get these gone. $300 plus $60 to ship. That's way less than the price of just one new tire. Enough leftover to just buy a new wheel if you want (other wheel, although not perfect, is not too shabby).

And for what it's worth, OMF will convert these to beadlocks for $235/wheel Since they cut off the rim edge in the process, that takes care of that.

ml, I got your PM and replied, but PMs are stuck in my outbox for some unknown reason. I can email you if you PM me your email.

Leather, what gives with the outbox silliness??
