Reputable dealers are listed in phone directories and online directories. There are sale and purchase codes applicable to every dealer and the most important criteria for sale and purchase is to provide proof f ownership of the car.

You can also check with local repair shops that sell used tires. These places will likely only take the tires if they are in good shape, but most repair shops know how to repair flat tires and make them usable again.
