New tires start with around 10/32 of tread depth .... 4/32 means these are almost worn out ..... 2/32 is the legal minimum in many states.

That price compares well with this eBay auction for the same wheels without tires, which sold for $649.

I'd plan on replacing the tires asap. You can never be sure of the history of used tires. They may have internal damage or patches.

Do the wheels come with TPMS sensors? If not, those will run you about $170 for a set of four. Use that as a negotiating point.

Good luck!

If those wheels are E46 wheels, they MAY NOT FIT on an E9x car, the offset is incorrect. Read up on offset on tirerack.com (search function).
