Default My Deal of 2010 !!!

So I have been needing tires for the past month and I finally saved up enough cash so I began the long search for the promise land, after seeing I was looking at 600 or so for a new set with the whole enchilada I was really starting to feel a burning sensation in my wallet. So I though of Craigslist and though I'd just check it out, well I seen some stuff but nothing worth getting exited for, I checked everyother day and finally last week I seen a set of BF Goodrich Long Trails with 90% Thread for 300, I couldn't believe it, I email him and though for sure these were sold it or it was a lie!, Well after a few hours I got a responce and I started to get the 411, after a day of anxiously waiting I went to look at them and holly **** they were brand new!, 90%? my *** more like 99%. Those tires still smelled new, I ended up haggling for 280 for them, (This guy was rich living in a 3 story house by the beach 2 audis parked in the garage and a new x-terra) So next day I went to my friends shop and had them mounted and balanced for 20 bucks so Total spent 300.00 for a set of BFGood's

It's pretty common to get brand new tires from take offs for cheap when people upgrade size. But still pretty sweet.

There was a ad on Craigslist in Fresno that had some MT's for REAL cheap..

Good deal. A long time ago I needed tires for my Ranger after I leveled the front, and I found a heck of a deal 3 hours away on ebay. Got 4 brand spankin new BFG Mud Terrain 31x10.5's for $400.

They are still on the truck and have, no BS, approx 70,000mi. on them. I kept the tire pressure constant and had them rotated and balanced every 6,000 miles.
