You might try posting on your local Craigslist. Doubtful you can save much over the cost of a new tire when you factor in shipping on something that large and heavy. Good luck!

Thanks for your suggestion. I already have a wanted add on craig's list.
The Tires are Pirelli Scorpion Zero 285-55-18's.
They are about $250 each new. You can get a good used tire (50% tread or more) for a tire like this from $50 to $100 (50 to 90% of tread). Shipping is from $20 to $30 via UPS. My other 3 tires have about 70% tread left. It makes sense to me to try to pick up a used one first. If I can't find one, I can always buy the new one. That size is standard issue on the G550.
So if an owner of a G550 upgrades his wheels and tires maybe he will have a tire he can sell? If I don't ask, I won't receive.
