    I want to buy new tires (bigger/wider) I have a 2k budget but prefer not to spend all of it on tires and rims. I drive a lot of highway and plan on driving on the beach A LOT and during the winter we get a nice amount of snow. So I was thinking and wanted some advice, should I just keep my stock rims and buy the biggest tire that can fit on them? I feel like it wont be much of a difference but I may be wrong or just buy a new set of wheels and tires? and if I went with that route what would be the biggest I can go without having ay problems? I heard about rubbing or something like that. And in the near future I also do plan on getting a lift kit but that will be later. I would like to get a little height from the wheels if possible. Ugh I don't know what I would do without TW.

    Thank You!

    get tires with a weakish side wall so you can air down for driving on a beach, id say an all terrain, (bfg) since you will also be doing highway

    Strong sidewall makes it super hard to air down because you damn near have to take it to single digits to get them to flex at all.

    I'm not too familiar with ones with weak side walls. However I hear the Mickey Thompson MTZs I'm rocking flex really well.

    However if you're looking for sand use, have a look at Nitto Dune Grapplers. They were specifically made for kicking it in the sand.

    Another good one is GoodYear DuraTrac for sidewall flex.
