What's a fair offer for two "takeoff" 0 miles Deathwings?

Recommended Posts

I know, I know, I know.....He should be paying me to take them off his hands:smirk: But....a fellow member with a new bike has offered me his Deathwings for a "fair offer" and I pay shipping also. I'm putting them on my "S" as it will be my commuter this season.:)

Two bob and a pickled egg. Maybe throw in a red herring if he haggles.:)

I just sold some tires on Ebay and it cost between $10-$15 a tire to ship them ground. So factoring that in, I wouldn't pay more than $20 a tire.

I gave mine away. Actually, it cost me money to get rid of them because shipping was more than I anticipated.

yeah shipping got me too... at least they went to a good home!:)

I scored a pair with ~500miles on them, bought them for $50 shipped to my door from an ex-member of TT.

I remember a few years ago I could pic up a set of good Deathwings for 30$ -50$ plus shipping. Sign of the times I guess, inflation and all, right now there's a set on ebay for 100$ plus shipping :). I think they are pretty decent for the mostly commuting, light trail riding and hill climbing I do. Like new DW's last me about 7K miles so even at 100$ a set +shipping, it's still better than retail. But I miss the "good old days".

I sold our 2 sets of DeathWings for $75 a set. Both sets had maybe 20 miles on them. 1 guy was happy to give me $80 as I didn't have change. I put them on Craigslist with pics. It took about a month to sell both sets. Not bad imo. I didn't want to deal with shipping them. A friend of mine with a DR 650 actually swapped his DW's out for some Kenda 270's :) at the dealer when he bought the bike. He even left the brand new DW's behind at the shop. :banghead: :banghead: :foul:

I'll give you $10 to throw them in the dumpster at the closest Wal-Mart.

Step away from the Trail Wings before someone gets hurt.

Are Trail Wings that bad guys? SHeesh!! He is going to be commuting. I would guess them to be a good choice for that.

I bought my bike used with full knobbies, but poeple claim that the DW are actually quite good on the street I actually would like to get a pair solely for street duty. Or maybe just get a SM wheel set.

Much better! Sounds great to me! Where do I send you the money? LOL

DW are not bad for trail riding, I've been through some rough single track in the Poconos but if it gets muddy... well... just bring some supplies... you'll be in it for a while

they are perfect tires for commuting if you're getting a good price then buy them. i use mine in the off season for commuting then change to kendas when trails open. i love the DWs ON the road.

When I put SM wheels on there the Deathwings got nailed ot the garage wall so I dont pull the van in too far.

I thought they were OK untill I got real tires (Micheling Pilot Road).

If you are staying with the 18/21's and need to put some miles on the bike on the cheap, I guess they are OK. Its just night and day with real rubber on there. I would to a Rally Raid, TKC 80 or Karoo or even a good trials tire before I would go back to DW's

Maybe its just me - check the sig line.
