GREAT DEAL ON TIRES gotta love craigslist :)

Hey everyone. I was searching craigslist few nights ago and i came across an add for a guy selling/trading for all terrains. he was trading a set of BRAND NEW INTERCO Tsl Thornbirds. My tires had about 40-50% left for a brand new set of these, straight trade And he showed me his receipt so i know there not stolen or anything. Tell me what u guys think

very nice. Btw these are 31x11x15"s, But they were much taller then my pervious 31's. And the knobs sticking out the side make them about 12.2"wide.

I wonder how long until you want to trade them back. I really haven't heard anything good about those tires. But...if it makes you happy, rock on!

I got a set of the same exact tires (but they were 31X12.50R15) for about 300 and they had about 90% left on them. Are they rubbin on your frame at all?

you got the rotten end of the deal!! even though the tires you traded on had half life left i bet the would out last and out perform the set you got now... these are considered one of if not the worst tire on the market.

I Love Craigslist!
I have got and sold all types of stuff off Craigslist, you just got to be careful and know something about what your getting. Be thankful for the internet.
Hay if you like the tires and you having fun, screw it! Enjoy life. Even if they don’t last for 20k at that price just get another set.
Make friends with some of the guys at the tire store you would not believe how good a lot of those “old tires” are and what you can get with a little cash and a lot of patience.
(After 32 years in California I still got a bit of New York left)

I haven't owned them, just remember watching someone with them on on a snowy day. They've reviewed pretty unanimously terrible. AND they look homemade.

Be careful in the rain!!! Buddy had them on his truck and couldn't make it up a muddy firetrail without a tug either. Just be aware in sloppy situations.
