Just tell him you don't want them. You would prefer something new. Straight & forward.

I would get new ones. Even though you're paying a little more, you know that they are going to last, and that they have not been mistreated...Plus you eliminate the chance of getting ripped off grin

Not a huge difference in price for the new ones. You'll feel better with the new ones.

Even if the used ones are pefectly mint, I think it's worth $40 to have the peace-of-mind that comes with having new parts on your car. I don't like the feeling of driving around thinking "I'm 95% sure everything on my car is in good shape".
