    Re: Buying second hand tyres

    I have bought second hand tires, but from someone I know, so could be reasonably sure they were in decent shape. Buying off of gumtree or the like would not be something I would do, just seems to...

    Ek vind dit ook baie vreemd, maar wat my eintlik meer pla is dat daar dan potentiaal is vir die 3.0 om so sleg te loop. Uit my baie limited experience van 4 karre lyk die 2.5 soos n beter opsie.
