BFG Tires

This week I got some tires for my flat-bed truck from a guy that was building his Bronco up for the hills. He had bought 30" tires and then decided that they were too small. They are the exact same tires that I was going to put on the truck for snow plowing this winter. $200.00 for four tires less than 2,000 miles on them.
Earlier this year I had already obtained one of the same tire with about 7,000 miles on it for $30 (this will make a great spare) from a guy that had the misfortune of traveling out of state with his bald tires had had a blow-out and bought one new one to get home with. Then he decided to put taller tires on his vehicle also. The cost for these tires at Discount would have been well over $1,000.00.

That looks good. I'd offer him $1,800 cash and try to settle somewhere around $2,200. If its shutting off, it could be something as simple as a loose wire or bad safety switch.

If I bought it and fixed it and cleaned it up how much do you think I could get it for? Would it be worth my time?

I was thinking it might have been older than what he said because of the discharge chute and some other things but considering the seat it has on it and the front castor arms (the older ones were not reinforced like that if I remember correctly) I think its probably a 2009.
