    i have come across a deal on a set of tires, with 75% tread or better, for "a few hundred bucks" according to the guy. i'm assuming that means around $300. the only thing that scares me is that they are 16.5" stock rims. what do you guys think? should i buy em, or pass?

    If you never air down for trail running or manage your air well 16.5" can be fine. If you think you might want to air down I would avoid them and wait on some 15 or 16" tires.

    $300 sounds like a good deal but not a great deal. It is something you could probably find again down the road if you are patient.
