why the hell would i get 31s i have a 4x4 with maxed tbars AAL and soon a BL i could almost run 35s but ill stick with the 33s
only problem with grabbers is they are on a national backorder as far as i know
but otherwise thats what im lookin at
unless my friend that works at a tire shop can get me a better deal on bfg A/t

Whoops. I didn't read the whole post. I just read your signature. I think 33" Grabbers would be great. BFG A/T next after the Grabbers.

BFG A/T for sure. I've got them on my f150 and they are a great tire. I actually ended up finding mine locally because everyone was sold out of them but one lone supplier in town had them in stock.

Have you checked these guys though? You'll have to call since they don't list if they're in stock on their site. They didn't have the size I needed, but they might have yours. You never know and their prices can't be beat.

BFG AT's in a 33x12.5x15, they have a stronger sidewall than the Grabbers.

I love my BFgoodrich All terrains so much i bought some BFG Mud Terrains, but the All terrains are still my winter tires, the handle amazing on ice and snow, with a pretty smooth ride, and look good for AT's

Personally, since you want an all-terrain tire, I would go with the BFG ATís.

the guy wants 575 for all of it
im kinda thinkin its a good deal and maybe i can talk the guy down on the price without the rims but im not sure about the tires
