I need your opinions!

I'm looking into buying these tires on craigslist and the guy wants $550 for the 4 tires. He says that the tires have less than 6000 miles on them and are all in good shape. What do you guys think:
1. What percentage tread would you say is left on them
2. is it a good deal?
3. how long will they last me?
thanks

400 max.

I've never paid more than 400 for second hand tires unless rims were included, then I might pay more.
