Yeah It would look better with wider ones, Can't wait to see bigger tires on it , it looks good now but with that lift it will look sweet with big ones.

hate to sound like the a$$ of the group, but if you want the big tires, you gonna have to pay the big price.
check out on some local forums, people are always selling tires that they dont need anymore. I paid 100 for a set of mud terrains thru a board.

Check out some Pro-Comp M/T's, or X-terrains. I had a set of the M/T's and they lasted 40 some thousand and work like total bad aces off road. They arent the loudest, but they let you know that theyre there. The X-terrains suck monkey nads in the mud, but they are loud and look BA. Andy has them and he would be able to give you a better review. But as far as M/T's go, I will only run Pro-Comps

its recommended to rotate the mtr's at every oil change to get the max lift and least road noise...

Tires are not something to cheap out on. Sure you can look around for better pricing, but it is rare that you wont need some sort of customer service. If you go ebay or some place that doesnt look that reputable you are going to get screwed.

wait a month and save up more money. you can use that month to do more research to find what you want and then get it.

your haste for getting bigger tires is frightening

Get the Trxus STS 36x14.5x15, that would be killer.

Or the MTR's 37x12.50

knowing that your here in fla like myself, and beach driving is kinda common, id go with the trxus in the size mark suggested. Ive seen them on quite a few trucks here, and they are a very nice tire.
