    I am not a tire guy, but I say as long as they are not outta round and they are really worn evenly then u should be good to go. Grapplers are mean looking tires and I can't wait to have to buy new tires and get some trail grapplers.

    Nothing wrong with used Just got these for next summer for $80.00 off of Craigslist If they last me 1 1/2 summers I'll be happy.. Better then spending $600+ on new tires..

    If you haven't jump all over these. Those tires have about 20k left on them, depending on your summer weather and how often you rotate them. The BFG is a great tire if they are taken care of and air pressure it correct in them so they do not balloon out and wear uneven. Nitto is also a great tire. For the price and tread amount left you would be happy with these until you could get something else.

    The guy still has them for sale...then i got to thinking i have about 1/4 tread left on my BFs and i switch to these at about 1/4 left, im not really getting anywhere...i have priced out Toyo Open Country AT2s for 965 installed for 275/65/R18

    If the BFG's are bad I would go with the others. The Nittos will last for quite a while and are great tires.
