the point is the tires aren't listed as they are. the tires are not safe to be used at all. and 2 of the "good" tires are bad and all the tires are 23 years old.

Maybe you should go back and reread the add is clearly says "U come and get them not meeting anyone half way"




I have a set of thornbirds plus spar they have 90% tread. All 4 look the Same in pics. Expect the spar it is wore down.There 33in .10x15 they fit 15 in rim. They have lots tread left. 500 firm not going any lower and will not trade. U come and get them not meeting anyone half way. My number is (989) call or text will answer email but won't get back that fast cuz I don't go on that much. Interested offers only don't message me and say I wish I could afford it.you seen the price before u got ahold of me.

well I'm gathering its not anyone on here. the guy keeps texting me trying to get me to come get them and he saying i wasted his time when i drove 2 hrs and 100 miles to pick them up since they were described as like new and the pics look good but they are old and dry rotted horribly and one has multiple blown belts/lumps and separations. another has a few nails in it. multiple ones have torn/broken beads and he's saying i wasted his time when he's the one trying to pawn off the "like new" tires that are from 1991 and are the farthest from "like new"

i would have if they were actually as described. but they're junk and completely unsafe. and i use to work at discount tire so I've seen plenty of junk tires and blown belts and anything else you can think of

I'm thinking it is someone on here because I never got a reply. I'm guessing they knew they were going to get trolled.
