BFG Tire swap [for Northeast residents]

Ok, D-90 folks - this may sound a little complicated.

I recently stumbled in to a good deal on some BFG AT tires. I have (4) 285-75-16 Load range D tires which are essentially new. I was told they have less than 500 miles on them. I also just ordered a 5th tire for a spare - it is in transit. I am excited about these tires but ideally I would rather have BFG MT tires.

Here is what I propose: if there is somebody in the Northeast area (I don't want to ship them) who is planning to order these tires, you could order my preference and then we can swap and then everyone is happy. What I really want is a set of (5) 255-85-16 BFG MT tires. These are $15/tire less than the 285-75-16 BFG tires I have at the tirerack.com site. In other words, ignoring the <500 miles on the (4) tires I have (the 5th is brand new), someone can save $75 by ordering my tires and swapping with me.

Any takers?

If I can't find anyone in the next couple weeks, I will just get the ATs mounted and enjoy them but I thought I would give this a shot.

If someone wants to do $880 for the 5 tires, that will work (since I can get the 255s for that).
