Default I need some tire options!!!

Here is the wheels I'll be runing on the Ranger when I get it lifted. I was just wondering on some opinions on some tires. I deff want 31's but I need some opinions on what brands and thread patterns. I will have about 520.00 to spend on tires. So I want brand new tires.

I'm not worried about installation. My bro Brent is gonna mount and balance them for me at the stealership. Hes a ford mechanic. Thats what I really want is bfg's. But thats a little expensive for my wallet.

where are you getting 33x12.5 duratracs for under 600 bucks lol. A good deal would be like 750-800 for that size on 15 inch rim, and then you got to figure unlimited balancing and rotations, alignment, etc.

yeah for 520 its a bit tight for a good set of 31s... might wanna look around for a good set of used tires, or save up another hundo. but if you find the tires you want on any site, go to discount tires online and they will beat the price, plus the bfgs currently have a 50 dollar mail in rebate. might get you close to a set of bfg tires.

When i get new tires i'll be running Mastercraft, that's what my dad and grandma run on their vans, they grip pretty good. I see they got some A/T's that look pretty decent, not sure on the price though, they are a sub-brand of Cooper.
