    Hope everyone had a happy new year! I found a place that is selling used BFG's AT 265/75/16 in Houston with they say about "60%" tread left for $200 mounted and balance. What does everyone think about these prices? I got some Christmas money and was going to get 5100 with add-a-leafs. Then I was going to wait awhile tell my current tires wore out, but 200 dollars seems pretty good. What are yall's thoughts, what should I look for? Thanks everyone. http://houston.craigslist.org/pts/2132611623.html

    ask for pics. i responded to one that claimed 90%. when i got there 88 miles later. yes two were and 1 was maybe 70 and another worn to about 20%. be careful, if close worth checking out. if far get pics, if they cant provide, dont bother.

    what??????also check the date code on tire.could be a 5+ year old tire and blow out cause a serious injury or something.not worth the savings imo.

    Not a big fan of buying used tires.. you just don't know the history of them. They could be blems, second rate tires, re-conditioned tires, dry-rotted etc.. I wouldn't risk my life on saving a few hundred dollars, but that's just me.

    :notsure:

    How did this guy get so many sets of 60% tread tires. That's kind of suspicious.

    I've had good luck so far. I spent $500.00 for wheels/tires from private party and once those tires wore out Im currently using m/t's I got for $140.00. Im happy with them, You have to be careful I agree but it can work for you.

    I've seen that add a few times. Kinda been wondering myself what kinda conditions there tires are. Driven by the place plenty of times looks like a make shift hole in the wall tire place. It's not Discount Tire.
