Looking to swap brand new a/s RF with non R/F

Taking delivery of a G20 soon with A/S 225 45/18 run flats all around. Anybody know of a tire store in GTA/Ontario that would swap these for summer run flats and give me near 100% value for my tires? Would drive the car straight from showroom to tire shop for this.

Near 100% value? Try Fantasy Tires if they have a location nearby.

Never heard of any tire store that would give any credit for any tires even if they are mostly new.

Best bet is to have new tires installed, ask installer to get the tires back and sell them here or on eBay.

Ask your dealer if he will take them back

I took possession of my 2019 430i two weeks ago and wanted to get rid of my ContiProContact SSRs.
I called the Parts Mgr at my dealer and he gave me $100 each on these tires that had around 225 miles on them. He also sold me my choice of ContiExtremeContacts DWS06 at less than Tire Rack’s price of $167.

Give your dealer a call. You may have to take a “hair cut” on your OEM tires but it is worth it. The improvement in lower tread noise and smoother ride is WELL worth the extra costs.

Thanks, I did talk to them. They were more than happy to sell me new non-RFTs but did not want to take back the RFTs. Biting the bullet for now.

Thats a standard tire size that would easily sell on the used market to someone doing a lease return. you should recoup some cost on them
