    One reason I love being a member of these forums is because of the deals going by in the classifieds, id check out some lightly used ones in there.

    I wouldn't call them the best tire, but hummer radials are cheap, readily available 37's, of course they're 16.5's though.

    that's going to be a pretty tough deal to find. discount/america's tire co. pay 191 and 196 per tire for a 35x16x12.5 goodyear mtr or bfg m/t respectively. strangely they sell the mtr for more than the bfg. of course a 37 is going to be more expensive still. i think a lightly used tire is the only way you're going to come across tires you MIGHT be interested in, in a 37.

    the rims i have that are practically brand new are 15" , so that would be out of the question. i have not heard alot of good when it comes to the goodyear mtr's , but the bf goodrich's i could do for that price . i wonder if shpping is free :D

    not to turn this into a "which tire is best" thread, but everyone i've ever talked to about the mtrs says they are phenomenal. bfg's are good too, but have a thinner sidewall (i believe bfg has a 3ply sidewall, where the mtr has a 6ply - someone correct me if i'm wrong). i have heard that mtrs are not the best for mud - but what i haven't heard is people's definition of "mud". who knows if they are referring to bogs or just regular trail mud? clearly the bogs require a different tire, and even the bfg's wouldn't do much good there. just my .02

    btw, i think that you could get the bfg close to $200 with the 15 inch wheel - it jumps in price to do a 16 inch wheel size. i think that's kind of strange b/c you are buying less rubber for your doller with a 16" wheel as opposed to a 15.

    I just got some new 38.5 x 14.50 16.5 tsl sx's from 4 wheel parts a couple of weeks ago with there free shipping and 10% off, 4 tires shipped to my door for $975. I thought that a pretty good deal. Also summit didn't look that bad either.

    When I bought my 37x12.5x17 MT/R's almost 3 years ago they were $191 each to my door. Now I can't find them for under $300 each. Anyhow I have been running them almost 3 years and they are still going strong.
