Question tires info

I know nothing about tires other than a few brand names and sizes in inches...I sold my dirt bike and got about 600 give or take a few to throw for just tires on the truck..I currently have stock rims and stock tire size...Id like to get a bigger tire on the stock rim, i was thinking 33's...What is a half decent cheap tire that would be 33" on stock rims? Oh almost forgot, all-terrain (aggressive look)

Thanks in advance for input!

1997 7.3 extended cab 8ft.

4" straight piped
DIY intake- 6637 filter
178K on the dash
Boost, PYRO, Trans temp gauges (auto meter)
33" nittos on stock height

LT285/75R16 Nitto Terra Grappler (33x11.5x16 E rating)
If you can go bigger - LT305/70R16 Nitto Terra Grappler (33x12.5x16 E)

Great tires and can buy for less then $160/ tire on line and frequently in stores or have the store order for you. Not an expensive tire but great mileage, hauling, towing, & moderate off-road. Durable too.

I'm on my 2nd set.

What kind of mileage did you receive from your set LH and what type of driving do you do predominantly?

Whats HL stand for? And mostly town and high way (little pulling) I really like the look of the nitto terra grapplers. ALSO WHAT IS THE STOCK RIMS SIZE? 16" by what?

First set I got probably around 35,000 maybe 40K but didnt rotate at all. This set - will get at least 50K. Most highway driving and heavy towing & hauling on occasion. I do go off road and construction jobsites - I stay out of deep mud - but have been known to induldge in more then I should and the Nitto Terra Graplers have pulled me through very well. Their not mudders by any stretch of the imagination - but they can hold their own for being an AT.

My only reason to leave the Nitto Line - is I want a bigger wider tire. I'm looking at the 35x13.5x18. But that wont be until these wear out - another 20K miles at least.
