Is the fuel old? Has it been in a temp controlled storage? What's it worth? And do you think trying to sell the tires would be a hassle? Would you get less for them than the fuel is worth? These are the things I would look at.

i wouldnt bother sellin them, they would just sit around or be kept as back up. the fuel isnt old. he just got an sc8, but didnt like the gas thing so he did the elec. conversion. its prob been stored inside knowing him

He doesn't need the fuel anymore so its value to him is less than your tires. I'd keep the tires, you'll need lots of tires.
I'd wait and trade for something else. Old servo=old fuel or something.

4 tires=$30
1 sidewinder gallon fresh=$30

sidewinder is just as good as nitrothane, or any other fuel.

Sidewinder is way better than Nitrotane.

Morgan makes it.

20/12 Sidewinder is the best fuel I've used so far.
30/10 was good
15% Coolpower in my airplane.

Better than Od, Trinity, CF, WC, BT,Byrons, etc...

haven't tried Byrons new fuel though.

I would definately not do the trade. Tires are worth alot more than an already opened gallon of fuel.

I too hate sidewinder fuels. Odonnell, nitrotane, and byrons gen 2 is where its at. I personally run odonnell.

That's what I run Byron's Gen 2 Fuel.. my personal fav. Plus my local shop, sells it so a double bonus...

I don't care what kind of fuel it is I still wouldn't make the trade.

I hope he is giving you atleast $20 for the brand new tires.

If he was really a good bud he would just give you the fuel. thats what my buddies and I do whan we dont need something and someone else does. Especially for something as small as an open bottle of fuel.
