Thinking of buying these used tires for my stock 16'' rims. Couple questions.

BFGOODRICH RUGGED terrain lt | pneus, jantes | Longueuil / Rive-Sud | Kijiji

Excuse the french add. Despite the picture the guy is selling them without the rims. They are BFGoodrich RUGGED TERRAIN LT 285-75-16. Being LT tires the law permits me to drive with these in winter as well.

Questions:

1-I don't want to lift my Jeep or buy aftermarket rims. Will they fit fine on my non lifted Jeep and stock rims?

2-Do I need spacers? If so would 2 inch spacers be ok?

2-Says they are like new. I will of course check em out. He is asking 800$ for the 4. What would be a resonable price. Keep in mind this is Canada and tires are more expensive than in the U.S.

Thanks

I bought used tires 2 times now.. Once went well and once went not so well.. Tread was uneven on each side of a tire, sidewall stiffness was not consistent, one was out of round. Must've had it road force balanced 10 times. Inspect everything you can - tread, wear, dry rot, etc but remember there are certain things you cannot be sure of until the tires are mounted up and rolling. I would say get the price down and account for these possibilities.

I will definitely thoroughly inspect them before buying if I pick these up. From what I've read these should fit fine with my stock rims and no lift as long as I put spacers?

I would check the date of mfg.. should be a 4 digit code on the tire.. for example 1212.. would mean the tires were made the 12th week of 2012. I would not want used tires that were more than a couple years old.
