5 used BFG A/T's tires on Tornado Rims

I have a set of 5 BFG A/T tires in great condition installed on Land Rover Tornado rims for sale. The tire size is stock NAS Defender size: 265/85/R16. They were purchased new in 2008 but only have 27 045 miles on them. According to advanced scientific calculations the thread depth is approximately 9/32” which the experts say is 87.5% of lifespan remaining. I have the original receipt that includes free replacement certificates, lifetime spin, balance and repairs.The rims are also in good condition. Photos can be provided.

$500 for rims and tires.
$300 for rims only.
$300 for tires only.

Pick up in Portland, OR or Gig Harbor, WA preferred. I can also deliver to All British Field Meet in Portland.

I think I'll need a bit more accurate description! Jk. ;-)

Good deal! Glwts.

I did think 265/75 was stock NAS, though. Either way, taller is better.

So you put 27,000 miles on them and they still have 87% treat left? That's impressive! I hope the 33x10.5's do even half that well on mine

Carl,
If they are 75 profile and not 85 I'd be interested in the tires if there's a cheap way
to ship them.

Yep, they're 275/75. Someone local is buying the tires but the Tornado rims are still available.

I guess so! I'm not very familiar with measuring thread depth and wear. According the wear chart I found that's what it says. Is it calculated differently between road, A/T and Mud tires or are they all treated the same way in terms of measuring wear? They all vary in tread depth don't they?
