Would you guys buy these?
 
I found these Firestone Winterforce tires. I asked the guy how much tread was left and he just sent these pictures. He wants 275 with wheels but the wheels are for an RSX. I might be able to talk him down. I could always sell the wheels. He said they have around 2000 miles. What do you guys think? How much tread do you think is actually left?

Why do you need them?

I have a set of 2002 WRX wheels I will put them on for a dedicated winter set. I just don't know what to think about the tread with the dime comparison and the price.

I already tried to get the guy to separate but he said he didn't want to pay to get them separated.

What do you think you could sell the rims for? 100$ maybe

I just talked to a guy that said he sold his winterforce tires when they had that much tread left because they were more like all seasons at that point. He said he would pass on them.

06_hawk_eye 10-13-2013 09:13 PM

I'd take his advice then man. It's all about personal experience

Yeah thats what I was thinking. I may just get some General Arctics for 350.00 since they are on sale through discount tire this month.

:lol: @ using a dime to measure tread.

A winter tire is useless if it has less than 6/32" tread.
