New set of 32s

So my bfgs are coming to the end of there life and im looking at something alittle bigger. I have the beltec shackles on the way and the tbars ready to turn to the top and from what ive seen 32 x 11.5 will fit pretty nice, and if im not happy i might throw on a 1" body lift. Ive been shopping around for quite a while now to try and find the best all around tire, Im thinking maybe the A/Ts again because they worked great in the 31 and they racked up over 100k but Id like to get something more aggressive like the KM2 or The procomp M/Ts. I do use the truck as a daily driving, but im not that far from where i have to go most of the time. Any opinions and advice would be great, My budget is about $250 a tire
thank

Hankook Dynapro MT RT03 Mud Tire Reviews

I love my set. I have over 50,000 miles on mine now and still have 1/4 tread. Very well behaved on the road and tear threw mud good.

My 31s was $140 each with mountin and balancing so they should be well within your price range

My buddy Trevor had the Hankook M/T's because they were cheap and he needed cheap 35's.....and honestly.....they sorta suck compared to most other big name brand choices like BFG m/t's, Toyo m/t's, Goodyear m/t's. Those Hankook's were LOUD when slowing down and they handled like *** compared to the above mentioned tires. They also didn't last nearly as long as the mentioned tires above too.


Your budget will buy pretty much any 32x11.50...hell you can buy 5 35" KM2's for your budget! lol. I suggest going KM2 or Toyo M/T based on my personal experience with the old KM1's(I've owned 5 sets of 'em) and my friend's experiences with the Toyo M/T's.

Ya when I checked into reviews and things on those tires they said they were great but some of the people said they were getting only 20-30k on them and they were done, but im hoping with only having them on a ranger that im really not gunna be running them hard on the road, another thing is that there gunna be on the truck in the winter, anyone have any opinions on them in the snow and ice, i do have common sense to realise there not gunna work like on dry but i would still like something thats gunna get me out of my driveway after a storm lol
thanks for the advice

idk about bfg....i had a set of 31 a/t's and a stick went right through the side wall when i was offroading once, and my buddy had bought some of the bfg km1's when they were going out and got 4 brand new 32's and with in a week of having them he was driving on this dirt road and again a stick went right through the side wall. he took it to the tire shop and they said that his truck was dirty so he must have been offroading it and that bfg only covers workmanship, not damages from offroad driving, and he had to spend 200 bucks to buy another brand new tire when his other brand new one only had like 200 miles on it....and i had another set of 31 a/t's and i was driving down this gravel road to our camp site and a little rock about the size of a marble, that was a little pointy on the side that was facing up, poked right through the top of the tire between 2 lugs. my experience with bfg is horrible....
