Default opinions on a few different tires

ok so my shackles are on the way and as soon as they get here ill have another 2 inches of clearance, next thing to order is my cragar soft 8s 15x8 or 15x10 im not sure yet, i originally wanted to run M/T Claws 33x12.5x15 but ive been told by many people on here i will have a ton of clearance issues

so as ive seen other people on here with similiar mods im going to run 32x11.5x15s, if i have to do some trimming i dont mind, and i plan on ordering some fender flares as well, im trying to decide between a few different tires so if anyone has any experience with these some feedback on them would be awesome

BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2

Dunlop Radial Mud Rover

Kumho Road Venture MT KL71

Goodyear Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar

generally i dont drive far distances in my truck its mostly just a toy, i need a tire thats good in mud more than anything else, again any feedback from you guys is appreciated

The only way you're going to get another 2" of clearance is if you bought 4" shackles.

BFG A/T and M/T are very highly thought of and rated well.

Out of what you listed and your proposed use I'd go with the MT/R's or KM2's. Both are great in the mud. No experience with the other two, though.

the shackles i ordered say they are designed to raise the rear 2 inches so they should be 4 inch shackles, i hope, i think the bfg km2's are what im leaning towards at this point

Alright good! A lot of people don't realize they only get half the lift of the actual shackle size
