Good tires for relatively cheap?

So, I have a 2001 F250 and will be putting a 2.5" leveling kit on it soon and new tires are needed. From experience, what tires have good tread life and are relatively cheap? I was looking at some BFG All terrains, and have heard mix opinions on them. Im looking to go with some 33's. Thanks for any input

BFG A/Ts are NOT cheap. But, mine are seeming to last fooooooooorever. Are you wanting an AT or MT? Costco has some Bridgstone Dueller AT 365s that come in a load range E with a 50K mile warranty. $221/ea installed for 305/70/16. The BFGs are a higher.

I run the Kumho Road Venture AT's and I've got right at 30,000 miles on mine and they're still a little over 1/2 tread. I think mine were around $680 out the door for a set of 285/75/16

A good place to look is tire rack.com.

As far as performance and longevity,it's all a matter of opinion

Go with what your gut tells you....do your home work first

Best tire I've owned? Hankook DynaPro ATM. I've got a set on my truck and they perform amazingly in snow, mud, any condition. I work in the oil field so my tires see A LOT of abuse. I will be buying a set for my girlfriend's Jeep shortly (we've got a baby on the way) and for the PSD I'm buying on Tuesday. I have never had a tire hold up this long on the roads I drive on and not have a puncture. That's my .02

2003 GMC Yukon - Her baby Hauler
