I am in the same boat and from what I have found, the Hankook MT's are the cheapest I have found.

Some people don't like the idea of retreads, but check out Tread Wright. I'll run a set on a Jeep and a 1 ton Dodge and really liked them. The price is right. They don't make 20s though. Ultra Grip Tires, Retread Tire | TreadWright, Inc.

I run Goodyear M/T's 37x12.5x16.5. I buy used "but still in great shape" for $100 or less a tire. . .I don't imagine getting much cheaper.

20" tires are just F'n expensive. I just paid 1300 out the door for a set of stock sized hankook Ats, and this was about 200 cheaper than anywhere else in town. If you had 18s you could get the fierce attitude Mts. I had them on mine in a 325/65/18 and they were about the cheapest I could find. I did not buy them but I was looking around for when I had to replace them. I ended up taking them and my lift off though. It may be worth it to find a cheap/decent set of used wheels in 17". The tires seem to be much cheaper. I wasnt thinking when I bought my factory 20s..I should have got 17's.

Ya the jump in price from 17 and 18" tires to a 20" rim is huge. I dont think your gonna necessarily find a "cheap" set of tires for a 20" rim but you may find a reasonable deal. Try used. I have seen a lot of people on here and psn buy tires and sell them with 300 miles because they want different.

I'd say so Travis! The price jump is crazy! Regretting getting my hands on some new 20" Rockstars, got a sweet deal, but I could go get some new 17" rims and 37" tires on them for less money than 37" tires for the 20's.... I don't mind spending money I my truck.. At all... but I can't justify paying 2000 bucks for regular old tires (granted they're 37's).

I did find that Falken makes a 355/60/16 which I can get for around 1600 all said and done, its like a 36.8x14x20 which is nice and wide, but they're load range D which is what I have now and I'm not a fan.. I haven't had my Falken's long enough to say good or bad about them, but I'll tell ya a 37 on a 16" rims is a $%&$ to balance. I can't stack stick on weights because I don't have the clearance come my caliper to the rims, I really dug myself a hole. Lookin like I'm just gonna have to sit on what I got and wait X 5498465164988496
