What should I do?

Hey guys,

I am looking to get new wheels. My question is what should I do with my current tires? They are about 1 year old so about 15k miles on them. I want to get 18 in wheels, but my current tires are 17 in.

Should I just get new 17 I need wheels or get 18 in wheels and new tires again? What do I do with the old tires, if I go bigger?

I would just hold off until you run the tires down. I was in the same boat as you and wanted 18" wheels while I still had some meat on my 17" tires (PSS). I just couldn't bear throwing them out or selling them at a huge discount. Thus, I waited until my old tires were worn down. Then, when I had to get new tires I just went ahead and bought new wheels as well. Went from Style 159 17x8 with 225/45R17 PSS to Avant Garde M310 18x9 with 245/40R18 PS4S. Otherwise, if money is not a concern or if they are rubbish tires, I'd just throw them out, sell them, use them as a backup set or have some fun and burn some rubber...

I have bfgoodrich GeForce comp2 tires. They are definitely pretty good tires and I don't want to throw them out but the hassle of trying to sell them seems like a big hassle.

How old are you? I presume you are a millennial?

I hope selling used tires to buy new ones you don't actually need is the biggest hassle you have to face in your life lol

FF already gave you the best advice. Take the loss of throwing them out, deal with the hassle of selling, or run them bare and get new ones. It's pretty much common sense.
