Pic Req: 33x11.50 (brianjwilsons ranger??)

So I'm in the market to replace my now 2 year old MTZ's with something a little more practical for a carpenter putting a lot of onroad hwy km onto his truck... and more important, a canadian carpenter who sees more snow and rain than mud typically.

So I've been thinking of 2 tires mainly... goodyear duratrac, and bfg a/t. I'd prefer 33x12.50x16 but heres the prob... everyone I call (who must have the same supplier) says the bfg's in that size are on backorder indefinitely. however 285/75/16 is in.
Problem with the goodyear is that on their website a 305/70/16 exists but everyone I call comes up blank for that size.. it's either a 35 or a 33x11.50... on a positive note.. it will save me about $50 a tire, and they're in stock and would arrive in about 3 days... bad news is, they're slightly smaller and im curious how those will affect the look of my truck... any help with pics would be much appreciated

There is no such thing as 33x12.50x16. I don't understand what you are saying. I liked the Falken ATS I had.

After I posted this I came across some older threads regarding risks of running an 11.50" wide tire using a 10" rim. It's something I'd never considered before. However I never air down, probably never been lower than about 28psi. I'm not really an offroader. So now I'm not sure if I should be holding off for either the bfg's to come back in stock in the 12.50" width.. or shop around for a mud terrain tire with the best winter performance??

Forgot you had 10" wide wheels. No doubt, 12.50" would be better. I’d go with another tire choice.

On the back of my truck I have the factory 1" block, beltech shackles, and 4" skyjacker leafsprings.

Ya it bugs me that on the goodyear website there is a 305/70/16 size, however it doesn't seem to exist in any retail locations?

So could anyone suggest a good mud 12.50" wide tire that could run ok in the snow? :)

285/75/16, 33x11.5/16. Pretty much a good chunk of the 1/2 ton and 3/4 trucks use them and they're typically one of the easier 16" tires to find, plus good load range offerings. Just my .02 but if I were looking for a 33" tire in 16" wheel size that'd be my first choice, lots of selection to replace to blown tire if the need arises, especially if you're out of town and you need something in a pinch.
