    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    hard call since they are stock tire size...

    ask for 500 and then see what your buyers counter offer...

    I would be nervous about buying used tires unless I knew what I was looking at and could inspect properly. It doesn't take much to effect the life of the tire if they were mounted on a truck that needed an alignment or had other problem.

    I would even start lower, around $400.

    a seller should have the right to ask what he wants though...

    let the buyer talk you down... starting low will only get you even lower counter offers...

    even if you want to get $400, dont start at $400... no point to limiting yourself...

    the serious buyer who is only willing to spend $400 will make the offer seriously or wait until the price comes down... in the meantime, someone who is willing to pay the extra $100 may be out there...

    also, don't limit yourself to listing in just one place... there are a lot of other forums with a whole slew of people with different budgets, different shopping habits, etc...

    what might sell for $400 on TW might sell for $600 on craigslist or a ford forum...
