How big do you want,same size or something smaller? You can get 36 & 37 inch Hummer tires cheap,but you'll have to go to a 16.5 wheel.

Check out the prices on Maxxis tires. I got a set of 16's Bighorn tires for under 650 bucks new. They were the most reasonable priced agresive mud tires I could find.

big rrr better

I know price matters and it does but you have to buy what makes you happy or your not happy to look at or drive your truck, I run 38.5/15/15 swamper boggers all year and they rule. Tsl has a lot of tires to choose from but the new Bfg KM2 are real nice all year round. All a matter of choice. Start searching and pricing. Good luck truck man.

Don't forget the ply rating. The terrain in your area should be a factor in your choice. I got an 8 ply for 80% street and 20% off road (mud and loose hilly dirt). Softer compound and less ply's work better on sand, sandstone and bouldering but don't get the mileage that the harder compounds do.
And then there's the noise factor. You can probably hear Mud.man coming three blocks away with the super swamper's! Rum Rum Rum Rum
