(3) Replace Old Tires & Wheels To Preserve Car’s Resale Value
It is one of the most popular ways to increase resale value of old car. Tyres (or tires) of a vehicle are meant to provide traction between the vehicle & the road along with a flexible cushion that absorbs shock.
This important component of a vehicle is subject to major amount of wear & tear. If tire treads (rubber on the circumference of a tire) are worn or uneven then it reflects overall wear & tear of the vehicle.
This limits the effectiveness of tires in providing traction control while driving. In such a condition, you should at least replace them with some matching used tyres (as little as $30-$40 per tyre).
In absence of this valuable tyre replacement, the potential car buyers are expected to discount ($300-$700) depending on the auto models.
Additionally, you should also look for restoring the shine of wheels of your car. You should take time to clean out dirt, dust, & grim from wheels. You can even use a tire shine product on tire sidewalls to make them look new.
However, if wheels are dented, bent or scratched then take them for cost-effective repairs. Thus, you can increase the valuations of your car more then what you spent on it.
