What to look for when buying used tires?
Going to (hopefully) buy some used tires from craigslist tmm. Says only 1000 miles on them. What should I look for/ stay away from?

Look at a close up pic of the tire new and study the pattern and sipes. As mentioned about patch/plugs/cracks, But if the tire has sipes look to see how far its down on the wear. Check the new X/32's and use a quarter to gage it. Most tire sites have a ballpark way to tell using pocket change. Good luck either way
