Should I make this small investment?

There is a local used tire warehouse in the town where I live and after hearing everyone rave about how good of a tire you can get I decided to check it out. They had a set of 265/75/17 BFG AT KO with 30% left on the tread for $30 a tire put on. I'm not normally an avocate of buying used tires because you dont know who had them and how they were taken care of ? I really want a set BFG's but don't have $800 plus being I have a one month old at the house or at least I shouldn't spend the 800 +

x2 on looking for 265/70/17. There are a ton of them out there, especially take offs with maybe a few hundred miles on them to be had for under $200. Mount and balance from a local mechanic shouldn't be more than 10 a tire, you got a new set for under 250 for certain. Don't mess with 30% tread, you will be swapping them out too quickly, especially if you have wet weather. The BFG AT KO's are terrible in wet once the tread starts to get low.
