Those are re-treads right? from what ive read on here its 50/50 some love due to price some hate due to quality/ performance. My advise save until you can buy new or slightly used.

Fill out your profile, for starters... TreadWrights are about as good as you can get for retreads, have a 2 year/24,000 mile warranty, and are relatively cheap. They are a good alternative to name-brand tires, but some areas have different laws, you can't have retreads on the steering axle, etc.

In that case, I'd go with a BFG KM2 or TrXus MT in a 33x10.50R15 size. You can also use your stock wheels and not have to buy new wheels. If you plan on going to 35s, you will have to lift more, add an SYE, etc. It would be cheaper for you to get a 33" name brand tire and a small lift than a bigger lift and bigger retreads. The 33x10.50 also has much better road manners than a 35" retread, which ofter have a loud roar or whine at highway speeds.

That is plenty of lift, you will probably have some awful driveline vibes. SYE ($) will be in your future for a 4" lift.

I'm gonna say major driveline vibes with a 4 inch suspension lift and 1 inch body lift with only a transfer case drop? id shop for some used tires online and pop for that sye, if its a dd your gonna do some damage with that much stress on the driveline

If you already have a 1" body lift, get a 1" MML, as it's better than a transfer case drop.
