    I found a set of 35" goodyear MTR's has a set of 5. Do you think these tires are worth 625 bucks

    he wants 125 a tire basically and I can get them off tirerack.com for 169-178 brand new. Maybe I'm just being a cheap bastard, but it seems like he wants more then those tires are worth.

    How many miles are on them? A store/shop is probably low balling him so I would say $100 per tire max. I know one guy that only got $400 for a set of barely used 35x12.5 super swampers (not me!).

    great tires.. I wouldn't give him anything over 500 for used tires though.... that one with the lowest tread could always be used as a spare.

    kinda what I was thinking, he's too proud of his tires. He started off asking 700 for them, I offered 550(should have said 500) and he came back with 625. I checked tirerack.com and can get brand new tires for 119 a tire, hell for an extra 35 a tire I can get brand new goodyear MTR's.

    I was just about to send him a pm and let him know I wasn't interested anymore.

    thanks guys

    yeah, I was going to use the tire that was worn the most as a spare had I gotten them.

    don't waste your money, buy a new set and be content.

    i would never buy used tires unless they're practically new, and practically free.

    These are neither, so just walk on by.
