Great place to buy used tires. I've been going there for years. Here's contact info for anyone who cares.


Go to Tire zoo on 94th and lyndale in bloomington. they have tons of used tires. I have been buying tires for my beaters from there since I was 19. I can usually get a tire for anywhere from $20-40

are you sure it's a 165/45R-15 you're looking for, 'cause I just checked all 4 of my wholesalers, and no such tire size came up, and they cover all the majors and even most niche mfgs. (vred., toyo, falk., etc.)

None of the good sizes are available here in the US but those are, the bug guys use em all the time. Try finding 215 35 16 for a real challenge

isn't the federal formosa (or whatever) the popular tire for this size?

Just throwing it out there, they're a little bigger but I have the stock set off my Passat I'm looking to get rid of, wheels and all.
