Yokahama Geolander tires..Good deal?

The tire shop that is going to mount my existing Tires to my new Cragar wheels has 4 Yokahama Geolander A/T's 32x11.5's with about 80% tread left. He want's 80 bucks ea for them. Does that sound like a good deal....are the tires any good to begin with? The guy told me they are about 180 bucks, new.

crap. IMO. $180 for At's? i wouldn't waste my money. that's the price for a pretty damn good MTR, there are plenty of deals out there. just have a little patience and you'll find a deal. this summmer i got 4 31x11.5's on wheels for $125. great deal to get me through the summer. for geo's, eh i wouldn't pay that. your looking at $320. not worth it, IMO. for that price head to treadwright and buy some retreads for the same price and get brand new sneakers.

geolander AT-S is a great tire. i work for big o tires selling these things. i pretty much have access to any tire in the market at wholesale. and i was really considering this tire for my jeep. i will tell you 80ea. is a little steep for a used tire tho. id say a more fair price might be 45-50 a piece cause they're gonna get you on the mounting too. anyway i would get this yokohama before i got a BFG A/T.

No opinion on the price, but those tires are good.

I found those tires online for less than 180 bucks...that said $360 for 4 nearly new tires is a fairly good deal.

I'd go if: He hangs the tires, balances them and you confirm they take a balance and function correctly BEFORE you pay.

Nothing wrong with A/T tires unless you want to spend a lot of time in the rocks/mud. If you want/need some road worthiness (especially in the wet) primarily, go with A/T's.

I've had good experiences with Yokohama tires in the past too.

i had a set of geolander mud terrains in 31x10.50r15 and paid somewhere around 500-600 for them brand new. they were excellent tires
