Help me pic a tire

Im putting a 3 inch body lift on my 2000 xlt 4x4 with the 3.0 and 3.73's. Im putting them on some cragar soft 8's that are 15x8 with 4 inch back spaceing. Im just wondering what you guys think I should get. I dont Off road a ton. Just some ocassional trails and mud on the weedends. I was thinking about a 32x11.50 for the sake of weight but i found these re-tread 33X12.50 that are alot cheaper. Im putting on Underdrive pullies and a e-fan and then running the e85 tunes on a x-cal3 tunner. Here are the tires on considering

the 33-http://stonetire.com/store/all_terrain/

The 32's

3.http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

4.http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

The kumho's actually look real nice but let me know what you guys think.

Get the Khumo's for something different. Everyone has BFG's here. Not that they are a bad tire, but come on, everyone has them. Have you looked at the new BFG KM2's?

Retreads are illegal for the sterring tires. Only big trucks can run them if they have at least 3/32 thread and have to be on the inside rear drive wheels. Check the DMV, my girlfriends dad is a DOT cop. That is what came from him when I was thinking of getting them.

I looked at the tire rack and now Iv decided on a 33x10.50 BFG now Im not sure on A/T or M/T. What do you guys think? I know the A/T's are great on the road but how are the M/T's?

They suck to balance and don't last that long.

Ok so I think Iv made my mind up. How about some of these

http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku

wrapped in Some 33X10.50 BFG A/Ts. I like the rims but it sucks how there basicly a soft 8 just with those fake beadlocks and they want 3x's as much.
