There are 19in tires available in AT or MT and 19in wheels are cheap used.

I agree with Ron that getting away from a 20" rim will help but you still have some options. Check out Cooper Tires (specifically the Zeon LTZ) or Nitto Terra Grappler. According to their site, the Zeon comes in a 275/45R20 which will be around an inch larger and the Nitto in a 265/55R20 which will put you about 1.5" larger.

I have run both of these tires and currently have the Zeon LTZ on my LR3. Have been very happy with them as they still have about 6/32 after almost 40K miles.

Is it Supercharged? If it is, you can't fit a 19" Wheel over the Brembos. The '10 and Newer need the 20" Wheels if you have the 15" 6 Piston Brembos. If not, I second either giving up the 20s or the Terra Grapplers. I loved them on the F150 I had and I'm thinking about putting them on my Full Size now.

its a non supercharged hse, so no brembos. i want an all terrain that leans more toward the street type tire, not towards a mud tire so it looks like that cooper tire will be what i am looking for. i really appreciate all the input, so thanks everyone
