I need to get new tires and wheels and I figured you guys would probably have some good suggestions for me. I drive a 2001 dodge ram 4x4 with the off road package, so I have another inch or 2 in suspension compared to the regular stock 4x4's Im wondering whats a good size I can fit in there, I want wider, and bigger. But I obviously don't want rubbing. My driving conditions range from mud, clay, sand, and stumpy forests. Im thinking something like the BF goodrich Mud terrain in the 33x12.50

If you want a good all around tire I say go with the BFG all-terrain ta/ko they make it in a LT-295/75/16 mount them on some 16x8" rims. I ran that size on my Centerline Hellcats- (16x8") until I got my 315's And your going to have to stay with a 16" or 17" wheel because of your brakes.

I'd go with the BFG Mud-terrians. You will like them, I have them on 2 of my trucks, never had any problems. They last quite awhile too! I hade the All-terrains before and didn't like them. I think your 33"x12.5"-16 size would work well. I have 35"x12.5"-16.5 on my diesel and they rub a bit.

Hey, thanks for the advice guys. Im looking at 4wheelparts.com and they have some decent package deals, I wanted to try some 295/75/R16 M/T But all im finding it 285/75/R16 M/T that comes on a 16x8 rim. the tires I have on the truck right now are 275/70/R17 's So you think the 285's would look nice and work well. I wish they had some in 295's but its probably such a small difference its not even noticible right?

The 295's are about 3/4" bigger then the 285's I know it dosen't sound like much but a friend of mine had 285's when I had my 295's and when parked next to each other you really could see the difference. The 295's are about 33-1/2" tall

You can get BFG MT/KMs in 285/70/17 for your stock offroad package rims. They should look pretty good.

Pro Comp makes a mud terrain that is size 33x12.50x17. My friend has these on his stock 17 inch offroad rims. They look sweet. 4wheelparts has procomp tires on special: buy 3 get one free. I would get the procomp tires on sale and keep your stock rims. Just my opinion.
heres the info on the pro comp muds: http://www.4wheelparts.com/product2.asp?imseqn=746&occlass=PCTC&cat=TIR
