So on another forum I bum around on, i was scrolling through the classifieds when I came to an add for "FREE (4) 33x12.50-15's"

So I clicked on it. It said 1/3-1/2 tread, free if you pick up. So I glanced at the post date and my heart fell, the post was almost a month old. Decided to send a guy a PM anyway since the worst he could say was "Oops, i didn't delete the add"

Well, he called me today saying the tires were still around :shocked. Apparently people had called on them, but no one had actually come by to pick them up.

So today after work I made the run. It was about 70 miles round trip, but took almost 3 hours (limited highway).

I get there, and it's a set of BFG MT's. Two are easily 60% tread, one is 50% ish, and the 4th will still pass inspection but would be best as a spare. No pics yet, too dark out. Now i just need to track down one more 33 and one more 8 spoke steel wheel and I'm ready to roll with the lift :chili:

Kinda what I thought. Figured I could sell them if they weren't exactly what I wanted, or use them as trade for what I do want.

I'm actually looking for a set of 35" all terrains of some sort, but there's no reason i couldn't run the 33's if I didn't find a set of 35's I like. Either way, i had nothign to lose from the deal other than a couple hours worth of time.

I'll give you $10 for them! That's free money.

Worst one, still passes inspection but it'd be a spare:


Best one on top, but the other isn't too bad either:


4th tire is between the two in the lower pic.
I can definitely get a year out of them if I dig up one more half tread 33 to replace the spare quality one.
