Did anyone mention wrecking yard? Place that crushes cars by me sells really nice used tires.

Oh and uncle Scotty is a genius. You just have your head up your ass. Don't worry, I was in the same place years ago.

Being a genius and being an a-hole are not mutually exclusive.

I've bought tires from Craigslist, eBay, forums (both here and other places) and never had an issue with any of the ones I've bought.

Do a little bit of research, know what you're looking at, get a depth gauge, check the manufacturing date, check tires for rot/holes/bubbles/etc. I've only had to walk away from a deal once, and it was because the woman selling the tires thought they were "like new" when in reality they were so old they didn't even have a date code.

I'll buy new tires if I have to, but I can usually find what I need for less than half the new cost with little wear, in which case it's worth it. Either way, I'd rather buy a full set of 80% tread ContiSportContacts for $300 or so than a brand new set of no name garbage for $300.
