Amazing deal, but will it work?

Hey guys,

so I found a set of BFG AT KO's, with 4 rims that I really like for 200 bucks for the set. The tires are 6/32. Is it just me or is that a really good deal?

The catch: They came of an '00 GMC Yukon, bolt pattern is 6x5.5, BUT he doesn't know the backspacing. So, I won't know if they'll fit. he says he thinks they're about 5" but not for sure.

Since they are 16's I am a little worried about them not clearing the calipars and stuff.

Lemme know what you guys think!

Okay so, I searched a little harder and now know that they won't fit my truck. trigger happy on posting this I guess and didn't search as hard as I should have. BUT now that I found they don't fit he said he'll sell me all 4 for 80 bucks.

Here's a pic of the tread, do you think it's 50% or not so much? Thanks again!

now he's saying they are more like 20% - 25%, it might not be worth it because by the time I pay to have em mounted and balanced it'll be like 160 bucks only to have em on for a few months.

that does like like 20-25% tread left. i would pass and put the money towards better ones. Gm wheels will not work, they have a smaller hub opening.

If the rims are hub centric then the hub bore isn't big enough for a Tacoma.

Right move to pass due to tread remaining on those, but BFG AT/KOs are a great tire. My son runs them on his full size Chevy for summer tires and loves them. I'm planning to put a set on my Taco in the Spring. They stand up to the abuse of gravel roads, give great traction in mud/sand/dirt, decent in snow (not great on ice, but we run dedicated winter tires here) ... and still have good paved surface manners.

its the DOT date that you should be most worried about. "Expired" tires pose a safety risk.

Why don't you buy the wheels and tires then resell it for a tad more? That newly made money can go towards a set that fits.

What if I am unable to sell em for more? Just cuz the tires are so bald.

Plus I leave for Kelowna in a couple weeks and can't take them with me unfortunately, and I think my parents would disown me if I left them in their garage.
