I have a set of 325/65/18s on my 96 f350 and i love em. Good in the rain, good road manners and quiet. But they are not cheap

I had 35's on my Bronco and loved them too. Nice tread pattern and sidewall, not to crazy but attractive IMO. Never had any balance issues with them either which is what i thought was gonna happen because they are not a "high dollar" tire.

I meant like mainstream common (BFG,Goodyear,etc.) not like they are cheap. In the realm of 15" wheels and 35"+ tires they are very reasonably priced IMO

I didnt think 33/12.50/15 for 230 a tire was that cheap? I haven't bought any in a while but

Maybe they have upped their game then lol cuz when I got them a few years ago they were what I considered the economical choice.

The wear of the tire actually depends on how hard or soft the tire is. If it's a soft tire, it should only be used in mud and rocks. A hard tire can be used as an every day driver tire. But gas milage will drop with the bigger size. Just for the fact that it takes more gas to get started.
