    Uh, no.
    Just because you haven't used it before doesn't mean you can't start now.
    So, pluck the $2 from your wallet and by the ad, then you dump your spam here.

    just copy paste
    Shipping and listing techinque looks a little fishy. You're selling each tire in a seperate ad with "fixed shipping" of $7 each. So if I won all 3, I'm looking at 21 bucks shipping...while at the same time, shipping 2 or 3 should be approx same cost as shipping 1...

    Recommend you place an ad like I did .

    Edit 1/10 - seller informs me that if all 3 items are purchased, shipping will be $3 each, or $9 total. Sounds more reasonable. Now where's that buy it now option?

    Edit 1/10 - 2 minutes later - I just read below sellers comments on this board that shipping will be $13 for all 3 tires. Man, this is too confusing!!

    I realized my shipping woes

    I should have stated it in the auction. If you win all three shipping will be combined and a total of 13 dollars will be charged. I am not some mail-order supplier that has an account with UPS or Fedex, so I don't get discounts on shipping. Also, these are steal bead tires so they can only be "folded" carefully and so much. Three of them would be 5 or so pounds with shipping materials, and the box would be medium sized. If it seems "fishy" check my feedback, you should do that anytime you buy something. Finally, many people don't know this, but if you pay using PayPal your payment is secure. Meaning, if you don't recieve the item a request for refund can be issued and the buyer must provide proof of shipping.

    Yeah, good point. Right back at you though.
    Anytime you sell something, check the rules of selling it in that manner. Like here on MTBR, unless you buy an advertisement, don't advertise it.
