Need bigger tires but what tires?

Ok I have been looking around and I found these on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/4-Goo...spagenameZWD1V
Is this a good price or should I look to buy at a local shop???

I dont even know if i wanna go 37, I might just go 35's. I want a loud tire but I also want a tire thats gonna last longer than a bogger. It has to be a great mudtire but good on the road too......Any input would help guys thanks

MTRs arent really loud, or that great in the mud. but i would still get them.

get some 37x13x15 boggers it will look killer.

I heard boggers dont last long tho???????

I found some on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/4-SUP...QQcmdZViewItem
A lil more money than the MTR's

Should I be looking at a local shop to buy tires I mean then it would be cheaper without the shipping. Even when they say free shipping they are still getting the shipping out of the money you pay for the tires

get those MTRs i think they will look killer on your truck and they have a nice hum to them. plus they have good road characteristics and good in the sand. i havnt had them in mud yet but i bet they are good.
