Good deal or not?

I have been looking around for some decent mud terrains for a while and today I found some. they are 35x12.5x15 BFG MTs (not KM2s) with 70-80% on 4 of them and one is 100%. they guy wants $525 for all 5. I tried talking him down but he wont budge. What do you guys think, buy or dont buy?

They are closer to $180 new. The thing is, if I buy these I would want new wheels too then the mount and balance is $25 per tire

yea do it. but use the line that since they are discontinued, if something happens to one of them then you wont be able to get them anywhere else. maybe that will help you get him to budge a bit. oh and show up with 450 in cash and say take it or leave it. that always works.

I gave $400 for just about the exact some thing. I agree with Brian.

I would probably do it.
