To the OP
First thing to ask yourself is HOW are you planning to use this truck. That has everything to do with the selection of tires.
There are a HUGE assortment of tires out there that are "big and beefy"...all with a specific purpose in mind.
If you are planning to spend more then 50% of your time off road, then you have to consider what type of off road tire to get (mud, rock, swamper, etc)
If you don't think you'll be off road that much then your selection will more then likely be narrowed down to two types of tires
1-AT (all terrain) Big n beefy still, but much better for road, much quieter and much more tread life length.
2-MT (Mud terrain) Big n beefier (deeper slightly deeper lugs then AT's), better in mud, louder on the road and not quite as smooth. Also, they require a bit more air pressure for road use (up to 45lbs) and will allow you to feel every cigarette you run over.
If you plan on being on the road 80% of the miles or more, get the AT's. There are HUGE amount of websites (4wheelonline, etc) that cater to just your needs.
