All 31/10.5/15 all terrain tires are truck rated.
X2^ if you are going to go with a 15" rim, get out of the metric business. as far as good deals? Many big box web sights offer great deals, but I have found by the time you have the tires shipped, mounted and balanced, you haven't really saved very much money, and you have pissed off your local shop because you used them to mount and balance, but not to purchase the tires. I use a very small mom and pop shop, it is a two man operation with low overhead and very good prices. I did make a mistake three years ago and got my last and only set of tires on line. When all was said and done, I saved about 50 bucks. And I am having a very difficult time trying to prove that the tires are seconds. These BFG KM2s will be lucky to see 25,000 miles.
