What tire?

ok ive got a 4 inch lifted k10 that is NOT a daily driver. Im looking to put some tires on it. ive already got 15x10 eagle alloy rims and just need to deside on a tire. it will be mainly a mud/water bogger. I was thinking 33x12.50SS Bogger or TSL. Im pretty new to the offroad scean so im not aware of all the different tires. Looking to keep it best tire for the money due to the fact that im a poor college student. Maybe a wider tire. Not sure.

A 35X10.50 bogger or a 35X12.50 swamper will fit with the 4" lift. Either one is a great choice.

Some trimming will be needed to run 35s without rubbing. IMO, you cant really go wrong with a swamper, except thornturds. I've got 35" SSRs on my k10 and have been happy with them. They grip good and are a decent tire for the street. A lot of people dont like them because the sidewalls tear easy.

Go ahead and go for the 35s if you have the money. If not, you will be wishing you did later on.

If you go ahead and put 35" tires under your rig you will fall in love with it all over again!

Great all-around tire. I run them on my superduty and they wear like iron. For a trail only rig, I would go with a TSL or a LTB

While the BFG is a great mud tire (I use them on my DD) At some point and time you a going to try rock crawling and you can a lot less air in a than radial. BFG's also cost the most.

If you do get a high-traction tire, consider staying in the 33" to 35" range with your 10-bolt axles. You might also want to trade out the block you are using in the back is prone to axle wrap - might consider instead something like a shackle flip in the back, which will give you the same lift, more flex and not encourage axle wrap.
