If I were you, I'd do just like I did. Level it and throw on some 33's. You won't have any rubbing and it'll look great. As for what brand? I'd go with either BFG AT's or Nitto Terra Grappler's. I went with the Terra Grapplers because of the cheap price and I love them. They got me through 2 and 3 feet of snow yesterday no problem.

I like the way you think. Go with the Terra Grapplers. If you order them from Discount Tire they'll cost $615 shipped to your door. A lot less than the BFG's.

+3 on the BFGs. The terra grapplers just don't seem to have the aggressive tread as the BFGs. I had some 31s mounted two days ago and they are pure sex on wheels! It snowed 12 inches ind I went everywhere with them. Plus they have a reputaion for a reason! Mine were $633 mounted

Scott's wheels are 15's. Hence why his price was cheaper. After all was said and done on my truck, it was $700. And my wheels are 16's as well as yours Cam.

Rangerboy is right, I have 15x7s. But if I were you, just go get a 265/70R16. Same thing

Tirerack has them for $168 a tire.
