    I'm currently running 235/75/15 on my '86 GMC K1500, but I want something bigger and "badder" Someone suggested 31/10.50/15
    I want to keep it under $100/ea. (student on a budget)

    Any suggestions???? Brand, size, price, style...

    Stick with high profile tires and narrow. They cut through snow better. Don't go WIDE except for Blizzard 810. If you can afford it get 16" rims. Maybe salvage yard.

    I'm running 33x12.50x15's, Trxus m/t , same company that makes Super Swampers. Great tire, quiet, nice ride and big!!! Slightly over $100 at 4Wheel Parts. www.4wheelparts.com. I haven't had any trouble yet getting around. I used to run 32x12.50x15 pulling tires, they were horrible.

    I believe Tirerack has the Yokohama Geolander's for like $85 a piece, that's what I plan on getting when the worthless Wrangler's AT/D's on my truck wear out.

    We have 31-10.50's 15in on our 1984 Chevy K10, look good and fit good- no rubbing. The are Firestone Wilderness AT III's, not being made anymore I've heard, I would recommend the BF Goodrich radial All-Terrain TA's in the same size. We have those on all of our other trucks and they are great, that size should be around $100 or a little more.

    the geolanders are a directional tread and cannot be rotated side to side unless they are dismounted and remounted
