Needing new tires.... Any ideas

So what's a good tire for around 180 to 210 ... Moderate off road, mostly dirt road with some pavement. 33s too.

Goodyear MTR's are a great tire. I mainly do mud, dirt trails and they have served me very well. They pull me through holes ridiculously easy. They are $212 a piece on tire rack before shipping to give you an idea.

I just put some 33" Goodyear Duratracs on and love them. They are quite on the highway and have great traction off road. I believe I paid right at $180 a tire.

I really love my 33x2.10 ProComp Mud Terrains. A bit aggressive but amazing.

My first set were MTR's, great traction / good road handling / fantastic durability. Ran over a wood pallet at 65mph, imbedded (without me knowing at the time) a shard the size of my pinky into the tire. Drove another 20 miles and the tire didn't go flat until the middle of that night. I was very impressed

Second set were ProComps Mud Terrains, got a good deal on the '4 for 3' sale they have periodically. Traction is excellent, quite loud as they get older. No issues on the trail doing heavy rock crawling.

If the prices were the same, I would go the MTR route today all things considered.

I've been using 1.5" wheel spacers for about 6 months with no issues. I run 33x12.50x15 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's on stock Ravine wheels. Just make sure you get hub centric spacers.
