Is it OK to buy used tires?
We say, “Nay, nay.” Don’t buy used tires: you don’t know where they have been or how they’ve been used. The tire could have been driven overloaded, underinflated, or to excessively high speed. Any one or a combination of these factors could lead to internal damage not visible from the outside.

Why are used tires so cheap?
Used tires usually cost 30-50% cheaper than new ones, even if their condition is almost as good as new tires. The fact they were once mounted on a vehicle lowers the price of the tire itself. So you can get the best deal possible if you find a used tire, or even a full set, in good condition.
How do I know if my used tires are still good?
If the depth of tread of a used tire still looks good, you need to check the entire surface of the tire for visible cracks or cuts in the sidewall. If the sidewall has bumps or other irregularities it’s also unsafe to use as an impact might have forced the rubber to delaminate from the belts.
What is good tread depth for used tires?
Used tires tread can be up to 90%, but the average is 6-8/32”. Tires in good condition should have a minimum of 6/32” to be useful, or 4/32” if the tire is 13-14”. The average legal minimum tread depth is 2/32”, but driving becomes unsafe with such a tread.
