10.50's are harder to find actually. lol....not many companys make that size...only a select few. 33x12.50's are alot more plentiful and overall, looks ALOT better on a truck than the 10.50's do.

12.50's seem a lot safer then 10.50's. with such a big tire and having it so skinny its a lot easier to roll the truck. 12.50 looks better but is also a lot safer then 10.50's

33x10.50


33x12.50


mine were $824 all mounted and balanced. ($206.00 each) bfg km2"s

Depends on the tire.....My 35's are cheaper than 33's sometimes depending on the brand. Best bet is just going to 4wheelparts.com or summitracing.com or tirerack.com and looking up the tire size your after and seeing the difference in prices depending on the tire and the brand.

you can find tires online a lot cheaper then at a tire shop. i went to a tire shop because they will replace my tire for free if i slit a side wall when im off road or even run on a flat.

You can get the same warranty if you convince them you bought the tires and the extra service from them....I do. And all my tires I get are used. haha!

Can't finance the tires online either most of the time....that's when going local helps if you can fork out cash.
