I personally love my tires. I'm running 31x10.50x15 Yokohama geolander ats. They are quiet on the highway and awesome on the trail

Falken Wildpeak
aka Falken Rocky mountain @ discount tire.
i like them better than the BFG A/T's
have run both in the past. am getting 32x11.50 falkens again.
would never run the BFG AT again after running the falkens.

just my opinion.

If you're looking for top of the line, I'd say BFG ATs or Nitto Grapplers.

However, I'm broke and if you're looking for cheap but reliable, I love my Wranger Radials. I got them like $200 for a full set and they haven't let me down. My Ranger is 2wd and they have great traction. Driven them in sugar sand in Florida... didn't get stuck. Driven them in pretty deep mud in Indiana and Kentucky, never got stuck. Snow in Indiana, never spun or slid.
They wear great. I've probably put 15k miles on them and they still look new. They aren't leaky. I check my tire pressure regularly but since I got them mounted I've never had to add air, not once.
They are quiet on the highway... none of that "wop wop wop" like some tires.
For the money, they are a great buy... but they don't look badass like BFGs do.

15x8 no question.

And crank em so the truck is level.
Put the truck on a flat surface, measure the rear, and change the front till its the same.

Does BFG make 32x11.50?

I'm going with falken wildpeaks in size 32x11.50 on a set of 15x8 wheels.
Best combo I my eyes.

I have 31's on right now and they work fine to.
