Hi, I've been looking around and this distribution subforum seemed like a good place to ask:
I'm trying to handle an issue, where a co-worker wants to send 4 sets of tires to an Indian location. We are expats from Europe (Germany) and the tires are his personal posession.
Generally, do non-electronic parts like tires have to go through a lot of customs-shenanigans? I'm on the fence of taking care of it if it's not too much hassle or drop the issue entirely if it will cost too much research/ bureaucracy time.

I moved into a new apartment that had a storage area that the previous tenants did not vacate. After busting the lock I found these tires with rims. I am trying to get even a low ball estimate as to what I could sell these on offer up for. I hope this is an appropriate place to ask this question. If not I am happy to be pointed in a better direction. Thank you! 2 of the tires are obviously in better shape.

When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.
Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.
You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.
Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.
