Welcome to the WF! We also have a weekend warrior and so far have gotten by quite well with our 31X10.5X15 BF Goodrich TAs. They are normally around $220 each but if you catch it just right you can get them online for far less (around $157 each for the KOs).

Depends on the wheeling you plan to do. But a good all terrain would be best. Duratracs or BFGs are both really good.

Welcome to the forum.

I have Pro-Comp but wouldn't recommend them. I plan on putting on Duratracs next time.

It might be helpful for you to look in the "Tires and Wheels" under the General Tech forums here on the WF. Lots of good stuff there.

Welcome to the Forum

X1,000 on the Duratracs. Discount tire is one of the vendors on this forum. Check with them before buying elsewhere.

A 32" will fit no problem a 33" it might rub but probably only when you have the wheel cranked all the way to one side when out wheeling.

I have a weekend wheeler and im on a 6.5" spring over. BFGoodrich mud terrains are very quiet on the road and can give you the traction you want off-road. I have 33 10.50 r15 which you would need to run 32" or 31". I'm very impressed with these tires i just got them.
