Default Tire And Rim Help!

Hey guys. I have a Question about what kinda tires to get. I want to get pretty big Diameter Tires And I want them to be a little bit wider than the stock ones. But Im on a budget, so I need to buy good ones that are relatively cheap. I want All Terrain Tires and I just want some suggestions on this and your input
on it. Thanks Guys

look on websites like craigs list, or classifieds list and get a set of factory 16" or bigger factory fx4 wheels and you can put them right on. i got lucky and found a set at the local pick and pull while i was there last time they brought a '08 ranger in that had some nice wheels on it and they were unbolted right on the tilt bed and loaded into my truck before it ever hit the dirt. i got all 4 for $15 a peice and they had buckshot mudders mounted on them.

look at treadwright tires, their retreads, but i have not heard a single bad comment or review of them anywhere on the internet. the tires are redonkulously cheap in price, but good quality, their worth a look if your on a tight budget.Shop Now

What size wheels are we dealing with, Bear?
I'd say BFG AT, they come in tons of sizes....

Like surfer said, check with treadwright to get the best bang for your buck. I may try the ones with the crushed walnut shells in the tread (for added traction).
