Defiance 665 said it right. We had a verbal agreement, at the least send me a pm and make sure I'm gonna buy them because you have someone else interested. It's just common courtesy. like I said just venting. Contacted a guy in Taylor who will do the same tires brand new mounted for $120 more and I only have to go to taylortuckey.

Lolz.

Listen, everyone does business differently. I'm not agreeing nor disagreeing with either person, but I believe that things could have been handled differently by BOTH parties. Here's my advise. Just move on. Complaining about it on here isn't going to change the fact that the tires were sold. In any case I know a guy that has 5 35" MTZs on 5x5.5 rims that he's looking to sell. Just my. 02

I'm on the other side, I've had an item for sale for well over a year with a lot of offers. I haven't been in a huge rush to sell it so if somebody says they want it and will be in my area in a week or so I'll hold it. I have have two people have me hold it for months, because they kept giving reasons for a delay and I gave them my word I would hold it.
I've also been trying to buy an item for a while and have had people promise to hold it (no more than a week) but its always sold and usually the guy won't respond. I've offered cash or PayPal deposits and they say don't worry they'll hold it. One guy sold three different items within a week of promising to hold them for me. I even offered to PayPal him more than they sold for.

I think the marketplace has taken a dump recently, and friends agree. I used to sell stuff all the time on here but lately its just tons of lowball offers and broken promises.

Actually I do. You didn't seem to be in a rush to get them, and I haven't been out your way much, so they've just sat in my Jeep.

That sucks. I've had good luck, I think it all just comes down to communication and covering your own ass.

I agree. I've dealt with a lot of people from the site with zero issues so far but I'm very thorough with the communication.

there is one way to hold that deal. go there an buy it. cash is king!
local cash wins everytime over me delivering to, or waiting for anyone.
i know its a drag you didnt get the part, but thats the way sales work.
for local cash i would have stiffed ya too.
im glad you found some tires that fit the bill close by.
sorry for your luck.

It's all good anyway. Belle tire has 35-12.50-15 mt with kevlars right now mounted with their free warranty for $938 out the door. Can't beat that. They're giving $50 off any four tires and Goodyear is giving $80. If u get a Goodyear credit card they'll take another $80 off. Thank you for selling them out from under me

Does this mean you will be ticketing anyone with a gl4x4 sticker that rolls past you out of spite?
