Fair price to pay for used tires...

Got someone who wants to sell their BF Goodrich KM2 35 inch tires (35X12.50X17). The seller acquired some new tires and the old ones currently have approximately 8000 miles on them. What would be a fair price for 5?

I wouldn't pay more than half for used tires even if there is only 8k miles on them. Other may chime in and override me but that would be my MAX I would pay personally.

i have purchased a set used 31" tires off CraigsList. There are cost in mounting/balance and then you will not have any warranty.

But for me it still made good sense at the price I got. It really depends on what you want to pay and how bad you want them, just like anything else you buy.

If they have even wear, and are in decent shape (not weather checked), I think half the price of new is fair, and probably my max.

At 8K miles of wear, they are still about 75% give or take, so discount 25% at least over the use value. Remember, you are saving tax too vs new (if you have local taxes) but mounting/balancing will be added on.

And FWIW, I have the KM2's; consider having them siped before you install them. It really helps on snow/ice/wet roads, and smooths them out as well

HTH!

Can your jeep use 35" tires? Your profile doesn't say what you have, but 35" tires require a pretty high lift job.

Also going to need new 17" wheels to run those tires.
