If you throw in the old pads, you might get a taker. As long as they still work (but understandably not that well).

According to his Newbie post, he bought the whole car for 500 bucks. And the brake system is really worn out, causing it to wobble under hard braking. Then he wants somebody here to buy this garbage that makes him drive like an 80 year old, staying under 60 mph.

The Rotors are worth at the most $1.00 each at a recycle yard, but you might get $5.00 if you bring them four rotors.

I didn't even think a recycle yard would take them. To me, they are just heavy Frisbees. I think this guy and his "burd" should fly to another galaxy.

They may be functional after turning them, but they sure as hell wouldn’t be “brand new”. Plus it usually costs around $15 each rotor to turn them, and you can buy new ones for not much more than that. Even if the rotors weren’t warped, you would have a hard time giving them away, so your rusted warped old junk has no value whatsoever.

Don't sweat the flaming so much. It's the internet.

On a more serious note, these cars aren't really worth much (see your purchase price) so "original" parts don't mean anything at all. While there is a bit of a following, it's mostly just a holdover from long ago and some of us just haven't found a better use of our time. Used parts that are consumables like this have value only as scrap. While I understand that you're looking for a few bucks to help out with your hub swap, this probably isn't the avenue that's going to produce much for you.

Even if we deleted all of the flame posts you're still not going to find anyone that's going to buy these parts. You'll just have silence.

No, warped rotors are not worth being resurfaced. The wobbling will re-emerge eventually.

That alone deserves a flame fest.

Let me guess, "less than 3,xxx miles" means about 2,999 miles, right? But they're BRAND NEW!

Reminds me of all the ads for FREE stuff. It's FREE.. then in tiny print, "just pay a separate fee plus shipping and handling." But it's FREE!!!

Gotta love the eBay listing nonsense as well: lots of "brand new" items to draw you into viewing the listing, then you discover the truth (or as much truth as the seller thinks people deserve). As just one example, I've seen lots of collectible LP's listed as brand new. Come to find out the shrink wrap was cut open and the record is graded by the seller as VG+ or NM. But it's BRAND NEW!!

GTFO with that overselling BS.

Here's the way I look at it...

Before selling anything, ask yourself, "Would I buy it?" and answer yourself honestly.

And if you really believed they were salvageable, why'd you replace them?

We appreciate new folks, and it's great that you're here and want to fix up your car. But don't start your time here trying to unload garbage on us. We have plenty of our own.

I guess if were keepin this thread alive ill answer back haha not really trying to unload garbage but I just went to the junkyard and picked up calipers and hubs and rotors from a sn95 stang. turned thr rotors they were fine and rebuilt the calipers wit ha gasket kit all on a cheap budget. so parts can pretty often be reused and that was my logic. Not saying I disagree with you cuz safety is my number one priority and just figured the hubs are good and calipers are good from my 'bird ya get it now? rotors maybe not

There is a thickness limit rotors can safely be resurfaced to, but they’ll still be more prone to warping than stock thickness. The cost of getting them resurfaced is usually higher than brand new as well so it’s a total wash.

In addition to rotor thickness limit there is also a skin thickness limit requirement here. If you're so thin skinned as to be offended by that off hand reference to a "flame fest" and lightly used vs. new tires you really shouldn't be on any forum. Don't take comments like that seriously. Yea, they're low mileage tires. New? Uh, no. Anyway, the real tell will be the build date of the tires as to how "new" they are.

So yea, I see Torques point. Could he have said it more tactfully? Yea. But damn, don't get so bent out of shape over tires. There are way more important things in life to get pissed over.

Your other personality that liked my critical post agreed and understood. The personality quoted above is just wrong on many levels, among them being:

1. First of all, it's a public thread, and last time I checked, "flame fest" wasn't prohibited language on TCCOA. If the term flame fest were prohibited, you can rest assured I wouldn't have said flame fest. But, since flame fest isn't prohibited, I said flame fest. I'm pretty sure I had never typed flame fest on this forum before, and I doubt I'll bother typing flame fest again.. at least, not until such time as a flame fest is warranted.

2. The statement that TCCOA isn't eBay is correct, and is, of course, completely irrelevant. Overselling sales hype is overselling sales hype, regardless of where it's posted. It's used car salesman exaggeration, pure and simple. It's no skin off my nose what anyone here does or doesn't do with their stuff (that I'm not purchasing), and since I have no vested interest in it, there's no reason to complain. What was misperceived as a complaint was merely pointing out the obvious, as a criticism. There's a difference between complaint and criticism, the nuance of which evidently eluded the above quoted (triggered) personality.

3. Not sure what you were referring to as being my opinion. If it was the flame fest remark (oops, I did it again), yes, obviously that was opinion. But, since the OP/above personality is evidently unaware, the definition of "brand new" isn't opinion, it's English. You can familiarize yourself with it here: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/brand-new
As soon as you drive off with a new tire on the vehicle, it becomes used. First, it was presented as barely less than 3,xxx which has since turned into approximately 2k. In either case, it's FAR from "unused". You could have driven over all kinds of things in the roads right off the tire store lot. Maybe one of your personalities is a horrible driver and could have run hard over several curbs (that stresses a tire and it isn't generally obvious by looking at it), hit a dozen deep/jagged potholes before you got a mile down the road, run over rocks and/or scratched up the sidewalls, did burnouts out of every stop, whatever. Point is, used != new. If you had merely qualified it similar to: "In my opinion, they're like new and have never been mistreated", I wouldn't have even bothered responding to that at all. I'll credit you for admitting mileage on them, but unfortunately that rough estimate keeps changing (getting lower). A potential buyer at this point would be completely justified in demanding to see the original sales receipt, showing not only the date of purchase, but the odometer mileage for comparison (not that they should believe the OD wasn't rolled back), as well as confirmation that they were in fact brand new when you had them installed.

4. Post number. Seriously? Other than the one that liked my critical post, your personalities wouldn't understand the concept of quality vs. quantity (a rare exception being this very post, but then I hardly ever post in the Misc. section — and I won't be replying to any of your personalities' replies here henceforth, although I appreciate the personality that liked my critical post ).

Yeah .. your 8+ years of forum browsing are irrelevant when you only have 400 posts. LOL I just hit 4000, but for the most part - all I do is talk shit.

Im just feeding the fire. Those are "California" miles bro, like the roads here are all that fuckin great.

Nobody wants your shitty old tires or stock 15" wheels either. Does that make sense ?

If the OP can get them dismounted, someone on CL will buy the old tires (provided they hold air and aren't cracked) for $40/set. I'd be shocked if he got $60.
- The key is to take a picture of the treads and post it on CL and deal with the really sketchy folks who buy $10-15 tires.

The recycler can take the 15" rims for the aluminum scrap price (I think I got 27c/LB but that was a few years ago).

Thanks Gunn. LOL

Point being, nobody is going to pay for shipping on those fuckin wheels and shitty tires from California.
