anyone ever put used tires on their car instead of new ones?

I'm going to need two new front tires before winter and I took a different route home yesterday and saw a sign for "used tires for sale" out front of a Automotive Garage.

any advice on this one?

I don't insist, just curious

maybe I'll look into it just for the hek of it.

Russ you seem to be my FV resident handyman! I really appreciate your advice!

Do you know how to inspect a tire and how much tread wear is legal in your state?

Like Russ, I had them when I could afford nothing else, but they won't last long and I'm not sure I recommend them for winter driving. It's one thing to have nearly bald tires in summer and quite another when the roads get slick.

I've done it all the time. I have been going to the same place for years. They are very careful about what they sell. I also would get 2 of the same make and tread.
