Is this a good deal on CL?

I found a set of 5 swampers on CL for 350 bucks.

Here is the link
http://denver.craigslist.org/pts/1110791681.html

Do you all think that when I get the BL done these would look good. Or if this is a good deal to hold a guy over for the summer

Yea they are a little thinner than I wanted but for the price and whatnot man I think it is a hell of a deal, I will use the tires for the summer then use the wheels on my ladies B2. Get another set of meats that are wider when I have more $$ to spare

Not sure why the link didnt work for you trigger. Its a set of 5 Swamper LTBs size 34x10.50 on 15in wheels for 350 bucks. 1 tire new, 2 tires 70% and 2 tires worn a bit in the center. I think these will look sharp to hold me over for a while once I get the BL installed

Anyone think I will have any rubbing issues at all?

He says that 1 is good 2 are 70% tread, and 2 are bald. Those tires are 130 a peice that 680 brand new, two new ones 260 bucks plus 350 is 600, but you get some cragar wheels but they are 39 bucks a peice. Summit could have them to your door for 5 $212. So brand new 900. or used for 350 with the purchase of two tires to make it equal i would say go for it.

After looking at more pictures of Camodowns truck I am thinking the 10.50 might be too thin for the look I want. Plus I am not sure if I want to run black wheels for a few months either.

I think I may just call it a no go and either wait for something else to come around or buy new and go with something like the Nitto Terra Grapler, great bang for the buck tire and should last 50k miles

Dont get me wrong even going out and getting 2 new ones I would still be ahead but in spending less money I can get a different tire mounted to the wheels I have not and not have to worry about it ya know. I like the look the wheels I have give my truck and some cragar wheels might not do what I am lookin for

I would go that route as well. The TSLs will make a great offroad, weekend tire but I wouldn't want them if you drive your truck every day.

As long as the bolt patten is 5x4.5 the wheels and tires should fit. Why change what you have though the truck looks sharp with the black ones man

You have to remember that you don't have a step side bed either, he can fit bigger tires in the rear than you can. You also have flares, which he doesn't. When I rubbed my 32s stock it was always on the flares, I think flares are the first thing to rub for most everyone.

Ya if I am really flexing i will rub on my flairs as well, I have had to replace the little clips more than once because of it. I will have them test fit a 35 but I think a 33 is what I will end up with. Actually it will be a 295 and for my specific tire is measures out to 33.4 so it will look good. Fill everything in and not be overkill

You would probably be fine with a 34x10.5 due to it not being so wide. I think a 35x12.5 might be pushing it, you colorado guys seem to flex it out pretty good when you go out.
