Deal on these tires?

I have a chance to get four 36x12.5x16 Super Swamper radial TSLs for 325 dollars.

The worse tire is 15/32'' in tread, the rest are 17/32''ish. Siped in the middle, and definitely wheeled. A little tread block chunking here and there, not really a big deal.

Worth it to buy and resell, or buy and run? Either? Both?

I think its a great price. If I got them, and couldnt flip them for profit I would run them in the summer (just the 3 months i'm not driving 80mi a day to school) and they would be me wheeling/summer tires).

So yeah, what do you guys think? Go for it or not

Haha, funny someone remembers.

This is all my spare spending money right now. So I don't want to clean myself out. If I had a little more I'd buy them with out blinking.

But, as for my dad. He just doesnt want me not to be able to resell the tires is what it comes down too. Other then that he doesnt care

If I bought them, I'd use them strictly on the trails. If you drive them on the pavement at all, you're never going to get your money's worth out of them as they have very short tread life.

decent deal for a set of wheeling tires. 50/50 I'd say.

Yeah. I see what your saying about them not lasting. Ive had swampers before. But this summer I wont drive more then 1500 miles. I didnt last summer, and I cant imagine driving but around the same this summer. At max 2000 miles maybe.

I would only buy if you planned to use yourself its not an amazing deal where you can for sure resale for more money but a decent deal if your going to run them yourself.

No, these arent on Craigslist. I am thinking I could resell them for 500, actually.

Who is going to buy them for 500, especially now that your core of potential customers (JF) know that you are only paying 350 for them?
