Hmm, well that might limit the choices in an 18" rim.

For value I am very happy with Kumho. Personally I like them better than (don't lynch me) the BFG ats and nitto ats I had previously. They ride smoother handle better, and do better in the sand. All 3 were different sizes so thats just my opinion. Never had any of them in mud or snow.

The 325/60/18 you mentioned is $215 at tire rack. Decent price for 18s. Kumho list them as 33.4x13 actual size. Not a mud tire, but good all round tread.

Comparison of them and a dozen others:

Here is the sidewall of a 325/60/18. The nissan guys have good things to say about them. The sidewalls of 18s are differnt than the smaller ones.

My next set will probably be the Dick Cepek MT's that Stone has. I have heard great things about them. Nothing bad yet, other than the price is a little high, but you get what you pay for and I am all about quality this time.

Gosh Sully! Make up your dam* mind. So looking at a 305/65R17 or 305/70R17? Something around that?

EDIT: Just looked. Dick Cepek has the Mud Country in a flat out 33x12.5R17. No metric size about it.

I rode in Zach and Justin's truck again yesterday. They're way quieter than you would expect for the tread pattern.

Oh and btw, I'm an eBay scavenger. I spend probably 2-3 hours on there everyday looking for different items cheap.
