what 35 inch tire?

well i found a 4 inch suspension lift for my truck on craigslist for cheap and i have a body lift. im looking for a 35 that is an M/T and i don't want to spend a huge amount of money no more than 150 a tire if i don't have too. so what do you guys recommend. i have been thinking about mud rovers like i have now but idk what do you guys think.


also what are soom good web sights to look for tires other than tirerack.com

I gotta say, search man. What you are asking now is like asking what makes you happy. Everyone is going to have a different answer.

Are you DDing it?
Do you want a good ride or all out off road performance?
And you want to spend 150 for a set? save up a litte more than that.
Even 150 each, you are going to be hard pressed to find a quality set for that.

tirerack, your local tire store might be another option, you could look for an off brand tire, they tend to be cheaper, and are usually made by the same place as other name brands.

MTR's. $220 a tire.
KM2's. $190 a tire.
MTZs. $240 a tire.

u want quality...gotta pay for it. imo....if strapped for cash, craigslist has always been good to me when it comes to tires.

Count youself lucky if you only pay that much for a tire. Up here you add 50 bucks per tire, easily.

everywhere was wanting 250-260 for my MTZs but 4wp was having a sale around christmas for 225 each

when I got them a year and a half ago i paid like 188..

spend the extra money for a decent tire.. The KM2s are pretty well priced and If i don't have a DD by the time i need a full set again I'll probably get a set..

There's 3 things I won't skimp on for my truck... Tires, ball joints and brakes. well and all the steering junk so 4

I don't like skimping on tires either. Be thankful you're not buying 35's for 18's in the 300-400 per tire range.
You can find deals on craigslist a lot, especially 33's and 35's for 15" wheels, SUPER common. I often find see a ton of good tires with only a few thousand miles on them.
However I'm one of the guys who usually sells my tires when they get close to 50% tread so I don't buy them used.
