I'm getting me some rims and tires!!

Not fully decided on what I am getting. I'm pretty sure I will be getting some DC-1's 15x8... Now before all you haters come on and say "Man those are so overplayed!" Just shutup.... The Ford ranger is an entirely overplayed truck altogether. Where I am from, there are no rangers with DC1's or oversized tires period. My cousin sells tires and rims as a side project he doesn't deal with Goodyear or Michelin which is too bad because I was wanting Goodyear MTR's initially. Now that those are out of the question, I am looking at Cooper discoverer STT's, Hankook Dynapro MT's, BFG MT's (if he can get them, I believe they are owned by Michelin)
I am looking for 32x11.5x15 and both Cepek and Mickey thompson don't carry that size tire. I don't want to go to a 33 for rubbing issues and I don't want to crank the T-bars. And as for 31's they are just too small.

Anyone got any opinions??

Personally I think Dc-1's are sick. Why not run a 33/10.5" tire?

I always like BFG A/T or M/T's pretty inexpensive compared to others and last a good amount of time.

I'm not lifting my truck, and I think the 33 looks a little funny on a stock truck.... I think the 32 is just right.

Here in Canada the BFG's are about the same amount as everything else. Kind of pisses me off. We get hosed on everything.

Look at the BFG KM2's Instead of 32/11/16 what about 265/75-16? a lot more sizes.
