I try to be honest: Personally I would rather just put everything in the ad, it can be a lot to read and many people don't read it all but it helps from keeping me repeating myself. I would rather someone see everything BEFORE they come to see it, rather than see it and then see all the faults. I spend so much time showing vehicles to buyers that I want to weed out as many of the tire kickers as possible.

Ya meatier tires would help it sell, but at what cost? Even listing it at $6100, which is below BBV for a vehicle in "good" condition, which also doesn't take in account the extra options, I'm not expecting to get my full asking, people are gonna try and talk me down. If someone walked up with 5600 right now they would be driving it home, so if I dropped $500 in tires to make it look better I would need to get the $6100 out of it to make the same profit. Ya maybe it would make it sell quicker but thats a lot of unknown.
might want to try to list the items and a small comment, yea better to say it in the start then later wasting time.

sorry i meant a used set of tiers in better condition like $200 tops. understand were your coming from.

Ya I'm not really sure why but I usually just list off options and new parts in a bulleted list, I guess on this one I didn't really do much mechanically so I skipped that, but I ought to make a nice list of options to make it look better.

I wish I could find good tires in the $200 range here, but its a very active 4WD area so good deal like that don't happen.

i got you, i live in NYC and no AT triers new or used around.
but AS tiers used in good shape go fast. my fathers car need 2 tire and took me a few months to get a decent used pair. but i saved a bit over $100 to spend on another thing the car needed lol

Re: Another project:

We have them on craigslist here all the time. I bought 4 Jeep Orbitek rims with 235/65R17 tires (about 40%) for $100 here.
