32x11.5x15 BFG AT questions

There is a set of 4 BFG AT tires with 1000 miles on them for 400$, is this worth it? I dont have money for rims, so they would be sitting around for a while if I buy them, but seems like a good deal to let pass. If I put on 32x11.5 is that putting too much stress on anything on my ranger? Its a manual trans. Does it cause wear faster on things like ball joints and clutch ect?

Does 400 seem like a good price though?

Also, the camber is off by .4 degrees on my front right tire, will bigger tires put my alignment even more out of wack after the alignment? (i have lifetime but they told me i need camber kit)

Ive never needed a camber kit even when I was lifted with 33s. I ran the 33s with no lift for awhile too... you should be fine. $400 for 32s with 1000 miles is a great deal

Come summer I'll have a set of FX4 LII rims up for grabs. Neighbor lives near Hamden, his vacation home is next to me so delivery would be easy. I have to wait until the summer for the snow to thaw though, then I'm really tearing into my old wreck.

I paid 800 for mine brand new. So 400 with 1k on it is a steal! Buy them and save up for some 15" wheels.

You can get a set of new 32x11.50's for $600 from tirerack.com. Not sure what their 33's run but I doubt too much more.
