Tire time again!

So The decision for Tires for my 82 Chev is going to be around the corner(Just after the new year) Now i'm wondering what ppls recommendations are For a truck that will have between 37-39" Tires that I will be Driving in town(not terribly much hopefully) Don't mind road noise just want decent wear(tho i know you will have it more with a more aggressive tire) It will be for the loose dirt Mud and Semi Rocky places. I was thinking of getting Super swamper TSL Boggers or Maybe the IROKs but liked the Bogger what would you see as a big downside?

And I will be getting new rims with this so what would ppls recommendations for that be?

Toyo makes some huge open country muds 40" no prob depending on wheel size. I don't know about availability right now but I'm in the tire industry if you want me to look around for you.

My truck doubles as my daily driver, I run 37" MTR'S, I havent had any problems with them, Ive been told they are they best if you want to run them daily and they are good off-road, I like them and Im gonna stick with them

They suck in the sand as well. A couple of my neighbours are running mtr's on 1ton fords. One guy has been running 2 years, I think, and they still look pretty tready.

For a fullsize vehicle I'd either go with ssr's or boggers. I have never had boggers let me down. And if your not going to be driving on road everyday that would be my choice.
