Well i was looking on ebay, and saw that there are alot of new tires that are being sold with the title of being "BLEM TIRES" what does this mean? It says they may take more weight to balance them, but does this mean that they are not worth buying?

Thanks for the info guys.

IMO, i think it'd be pretty sweet if you had some "Supe Swampe" or some "Bogge's" or somethin like that :lol3::rof

In most cases like the person stated above, they usually just have a misprint somewhere on them...It wouldn't keep me from buying them

ld buy some but only if they were brand names like goodyear or firestone...
remember a news program on alota tires that were shipped in and were failing..anyway fella got stuck with pile of tires and ebay would be good place to unload them as offroad use..ld be carefull..orrdinarily there just a blemish on whitewall or scuff ect...basicly a "second" ...not qualifyible as a no1 tire sorta deal

Blemished tires still have to be structurally sound or they couldnt sell them. Usually the blemish is very small and is always cosmetic. If the tire was unsafe it would have to be destroyed so I wouldnt worry about it.

Exactly. Could you imagine the storm that would follow if a company was selling structurally unsafe tires? The blemish's are always cosmetic. Im running blems right now.
