BFG AT question

I've been keeping my eye on craigslist for some tires to replace my BFG long trails for something that would be better offroad. I found 4 bfg at's with 7/32 tread left for $250 including mount and balance. For anyone that has run these tires, would it be worth my money to buy them with that much tread left? My hope is to lift my jeep and put 33s on it this summer so If I could get 4/5 months out of these (don't put many road miles on it) and 3-4 wheeling trips I think I'd be happy. Thanks.

those are E-rated truck tires. they will ride pretty rough if you keep their pressures anywhere over probably 35psi. but they should go the distance for you.
just seems like a waste of money for only a few months really, unless your current tires are absolutely bald or damaged.

My current ones are e rated as well. I just want something that will perform better offroad than what I have. I figure if I get the bfg's I can sell what I have then if theyre still in somewhat decent shape when I get 33's I can sell them. Just want to hear from people how well they will do with less than half tread (although I'm sure it would be an upgrade from the highway tires I have now).

7/32" should be about half the original tread depth. most at tires have about 14-16/32" tread depth when new. as long as there are no plugs or patches in any of them, you should do alright by them.
