31in. tires and wheels. need opinions

Ok so now that i got my truck back from the mechanic it's time to finally put some tires and wheels on the truck. Im going to be getting some 31inch tires and some wheels to go with it. I live in las vegas so i will see more dunes than mud. Could everytime chime in their suggestions please!

NO on the dune grapplers, those are ridiculously ugly and probably have horrible traction.

The Dune Grapplers should have great traction in the sand. They were designed for it and the tread pattern shows it. There is a lot of contact patch due to the design so there should be minimal airing down required.
