what size tire?

I got my 2" leveling kit for the front of my 2wd yesterday. I'm trying to find a tire in like a 325/60/17 or something equivalent. I want about a 33" tire and would prefer about a little on the wide side. I just want it to look fat. A 305/70/17 would probably work but the only thing I've seen is the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R which I will not get. Any suggestions?

I haven't seen many in that size range. There's a fairly common 285/70/17, such as the BFG AT TA KO...I haven't seen any in the 305/70 or 325/60 ranges...

Checked a bit more, and BFG makes a 315/70/17, maybe a compromise?

yeah I know, I've been looking at all the tire manufacturers websites and can't seem to find anything. I might have to wait and buy a set off wheels to get the tires I want.

I personally don't like the BFG AT, I can get a Hankook RT03 MT in a 315/70/17 for $160 a piece and thats probably what I'm gonna go with, I think it's a bad azz lookin tire. Enjoy Driving Hankook Tire
