The local U-Pick down the street just got a few Impala's. A 2000, & a 2008. They both have the 16" alloy rims. One is the rim where the center cap says Impala, & the other just has the bowtie, & came on my GF's Monte Carlo. The cars are still in the "receiving" area, & not yet where the public can pick the parts, so I don't know how good the rubber is. What would be a decent price to pay for a set of 4, [rims & tires] or what have others here paid? I want to upgrade from the black rims. GARY

My local u-pull it charges 40 per wheel and tire. That being said, I wouldn't use a junkyard tire for anything other than temporary use.

Why is that? You'd be surprised what you will find at the yard. People throw parts at cars as a last attempt to get them to pass inspection, and when they still can't, they scrap them. I've gotten brand new tires, wheel bearings, tie rod ends, ball joints, etc.. at junkyards.

If the tires aren't dry rotten or bald, why does it matter that it came from a junkyard?

Maybe in a state that has vehicle inspections, but where I've been to junkyards (IL, WI and TN), it's all junk. There aren't any newish parts to be had. I'd never get high failure rate part or critical safety equipment (like tires) at a junkyard, but that's just me.

Most of the cars in this yard have been picked clean, but 2 cars have strut tower bars from the factory, 1 has the 6 gage cluster, & there's an 08 cop car that looks like it was hit in the rear at 80 MPH, but the motor, trans, & interior are gone. I'm going back tomorrow to see about the wheels. GARY

Fair enough, I guess that's one good thing about NY inspections. I keep my cars on the road with junkyard parts. Good luck with the tire hunt. Might want to try craigslist for used tires. I picked up a set of 4 newish studded snows for $25 on CL this past spring.

That's exactly what I want, but I'm afraid of the freight charges. LOL. 16X6.5 I presume? GARY

Yeah, I wouldn't even mess with junkyard tires. Or even any used tires for that matter. You can get decent new tire for a good price anywhere.

I'm really only looking at the rims, & if I bought these from the yard, I would have my tires switched over to the rims, unless the tires were in real nice shape. GARY

I see. That makes the most sense. We were just trying too deter you and anyone reading this to refrain from JY tires. Cool

I have had some great luck with junkyard stuff. Many times it is better than the junk people hawk on CL. Seems everyone has a tale of putting new parts or tires on a car only to be t-boned or rearended a week later. Can score some dang good parts cheap if you are smart enough to know what to look for. Easy to check JY tires and see if they are good.

I'd have no problem using junkyard tires, or pretty much any other part for that matter. I'm going to perform a thorough inspection, and in the case of tires have them balanced, but If they're not damaged there won't be any problem using them.
