Back in the 80's, I replaced the original 15" Goodyear GT radials on my 84 HO TA with Goodrich TA's and stuck the OEM Goodyears in the barn where they still are to this day.  Obviously useless for road use but just wondering if they would have any value today or should I just take them to the dump. Do 84 TA owners have concours events where the original tires are of any importance?

I guess the reason I kept them was I sold the tires I pulled off my BOSS 302 in the 70's and eventually sold them for $1000 bucks in the 80's and always figured maybe the GT's off the TA would have some value someday.  Thanks

I would think if they are in decent condition they may be worth something to the right person. I have attended many "concours" events and have yet to see one that allows cars as new a third gen to enter. Most in fact seem to cut off at 1972. I don't think there is a huge market for someone looking for that reason. You may contact some museums that may want them for a car on static display for originality sake, but most of them are under funded and they may not be worth their while doing a swap. If they used those tires on corvettes i would look into that as well. I know they have their own judging standards and someone with an 84/85 may need some date correct tires to garner a few more points in judging.

If you do keep them stored spray them down with WD40 it'll keep them from drying out and cracking.
