    They don't look bad until you look at the pic of the single tire closely...........it looks pretty worn to me.

    tread is alot less then 50% i wouldent pay more then 200, mounting and balancing will cost as much as the tires and they will be gone before you know it

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think that guy baught them used when the carolina crawlin rock crawl was going on in spartanburg. I looked at them. They wanted $300 for them then. I'm not sure what he paid, but I thought I'd better hold out for a better set. Like said above, the tread close up pic isn't 50%. I think two were like that one and the other two were in better shape.

    I'd send an email requesting pics of all four showing tread depth.

    90% of the used mud tires on ebay are b/s on the tread left. i would pass on them.

    The only part that looks like 50% is the out side lugs. Congrats on not buyingthe tires.
