32x11.5 BFG AT questions...

I am looking at getting the BFG a/t's soon after my current tires are totally worn. I've checked all around at local retailers and the cheapest so far including mounting and balance is about 135$ per tire, at NTB (for 32x11.5x15). I've contacted Sears, Pep Boys and online dealers, but the next cheapest is 150$ !!!!
Does anyone know of anywhere else for me to check?

Another question is that I currently have 31x10.50x15's on 15x8's, and I would like to upgrade to 32x11.5's. But when I wheel, I wheel hard, prerunner style. Everyone says that 33's can fit stock, but the way I use my Ranger my 31's rubbed in the upper fenders when hitting jumps and having fun! haha. And in the rear a few times I tucked tire so far that it actually bent the fender body out a tiny bit under the flares.
I'm not sure what the backspacing on my american racing wheels are; the tires are level vertically with the stock fender flares. I've upgraded my leafs in the rear and I'm trying to upgrade my front suspension to handle more raw action, but the funds are not here yet for that.

Yeah, I've bottomed out my 31s more than once but I still wish I would've bought 32s.

32's will be fine for you and I order all my tires threw summitracing.com and mount them myself. i have a balancer and mounter you really can mount in your driveway if you know what your doing and pay the $50 to have them balanced

I just checked, there's no deals on 4wheelparts.com at the time. I know a local shop that mounts and balances for 7$ per tire if I would buy online.
