Tire Question?

Some kid at my school had mom buy him a super duper cool v6 mustang. He doesnt know a damn thing about cars.

Now heres the question: He got a set of linglong 205/55zr16 tires. Brand new never mounted. I aint no tire expert and but i have a set of riken raptors with the same looking "tread pattern" and they were $108 a piece. I honestly cant find a good price for these tires brand new on any site. He wants $200 for them. Would it be worth buying these and turning around and selling them for more money? Let me know...

$200 for all of them? You could probably sell them for more IF you are willing to sit on them for a while. And you have the money to spare. Bet you could easily get $300 for them maybe $350. But never heard of the brand so I can't tell exactly HOW good the quality is.

Thats what i was thinking. I really dont have money to waste. I have money for them but that money is set aside for springs and exhaust. I dont know if it would be worth it to put springs and exhaust on hold just to make 100 bucks if that...
