    I found a set of four 285/70/17 BFG A/T with 6/32 tread remaining.

    They seller is willing to let them go for $195.

    This is one possibility of tire I am looking to run after I get my OME lift (ordered today:yay:) installed.

    Do you guys think this is a good deal?

    6/32 tread depth? They come with 16/32. You'll probably get about 7000 miles on them before they're totally bald. I wouldn't bother.

    If you check the BGF website, they list the original tread depth. It's either 16/32 or 15/32 depending on the load rating. 6/32 is pretty low... I swapped out my old BFG A/T's at ~4 or 5/32, as they didn't offer much traction at that point. The guy that's selling them should be giving them away.
