These substantially larger tires reduced my fuel economy by 1.5 mpg.
BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A Touring in 225/70/15 would be the ticket for the OP.
Show some pride in this country and don't buy crap.

Michelin LTX M/S

They are still available, get these. they aren't the cheapest tire out there but you'll get your moneys worth in how long they last and how safe they are. I had many people comment on how my truck never hydroplaned with these tires.

i second the BFG Long Trails. i put a set of those on my wifes blazer over 50,000 miles ago and they still have over half the tread on them. they are smooth as glass on the road and get her good mileage. they are also very good in the snow if thats important to you. I payed less than $400 for the entire set at Sam's club with the road hazard warranty.
