Default 500-5 Michelin Aviators, barely used!

Great shape Michelin Aviators. New for $328 with free shipping on Desser, gonna cost about $30 to ship CONUS...

How about $250 shipped or $220 local pickup??

Where did you find shipping that cheap? Tried UPS today to ship a couple of used tires to another VAF'r and they quoted me $113 from SC to Ca!

I just recently acquired some used tires for rolling my fuselage around on from a forum member and believe it was less than 50 clams to ship. Also USPS. Ohio to Seattle area and took about two days!

Default Perhaps I underestimated...

I sold my 3.80s to a forum member, shipping to WA...online usps parcel estimate was a little over $30. Maybe I should have guessed more!

I have always bought my tires from Desser with the "Free Shipping" show specials. I never knew it was THIS MUCH to ship them!?!

On an aside... My most recent set were Monster retreads and I love them! The stiffer sidewalls really let you feel touchdown. I think ground handling is better too. The tremendous amount of rubber that contributes to longevity is going to be a huge plus as well.

However I didn't specify matching carcasses, one was a Michelen. Next time I will specify matching...

I will gladly do it again!
