    I'm looking at getting new tires for my '84 K20. I have stock sized tires and wheels (235/75 R16 on 16/6.5 wheels)
    I'm thinking of getting tires around 34" and less than $120 each. I'm willing to trim the fenders some, and know that 36" is too big with no lift.
    I would like to get some MT's but do a lot of road driving.
    Just wondering what others have found.

    I had a set of General Grabber MT's. They are really close to your target price and in a 35x12.5 they were 34" tall mounted and aired up. I got over 35,000 miles out of them and they still have 40% left on em...
