View Full Version : How much should I expect to pay for a set of Hydra's?
I found a set of Hydras but they have some curb rash on two of them and one of the tires is blown(they still have the caps). The yard offered them to me with 2 good tires and they'd remove the 2 crappy ones. What would be a good deal? Should I crap my pants if they said they'd ship them to me for 225?

Well it depends on the condition of the wheels. If they are nice when cleaned up (dirt and brake dust removed) I would think they were a good deal. To give you a reference to work from, I bought four new Hydras 3 years ago at a major discount from the dealer. $508.00 each.

Is this from a junkyard? I wouldn't pay for shipping on used tires of unknown quality, especially only 2 of them. $200-$250 would be good. I've seen them on ebay in the $400 range for a good set w/o tires.

I am picking up some Hydras next week for $200 8) w/ 3 Dunlop tires and one remington or something.. minimal curb rash.. but no caps. I'll just use my Draco caps since they are the same and will be on my merry way. Does anyone recommend a good tire size for the Hydras instead of the Volvo 205/55 ( i think..) recommended size?

If I were putting Hydra wheels on my (lowered) car, I would probably go with 215/45/16 Z-rated Falken Azenis. But it depends on what you want from your tires, how much you want to spend, and whether or not your car is lowered. Shorter tires are good for acceleration and handling, but they can look really odd on a car at stock ride height.

Those tires look like they would be great except for when it rains...
I guess I just want something around $100 per tire that has fairly good tread mileage, good handling, and overall goodness? I don't really know.. this maybe better as a seperate thread.
They sell them at Sears?
