Tire sale

Hello members I'm presently at a auto swap meet. There's a distributor selling new tires. One of which is BF Goodrich. The price on the KO2 in size 275/70/70 E ply is $185 a tire. I have been looking for tires for my 06 CCLB. Is this a decent tire for the price. The guy says tire is new model and good wearing tire. 60,000 mile tire life. Need advice on this one.

FYI--These heavy and high torque diesel trucks eat non stock tire sizes tires for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

That being said, and while you will not get even close to 60k miles from them, those BFG KO2 tires do get some decent reviews at Tirerack.com and that is a really good price on them.

I've personally avoid BFG. Every time I've run them I've had problems. My last set was LT275/70-18E125 after a while I started getting death wobble and then I had 2 rear blow outs in one weekend. A lot of people run them but they don't last IMO.
