Best bang for the buck 35

Hi I'm new here and on a budget. From your guys experience what is the best 35" tire for the money. I know budget and big tires don't go togther ) I live in az so most of my offloading is in rocky dessert areas. Thank you for any help

We have had great luck with the Nitto trail grapplers. They are a aggressive looking tire that works good off-road but they also have great road manners.

Look for reviews on the Maxxis Bighorn. Ran the 315/75/16's for a few years and liked them a lot. They were about $100 less per tire than KM2 and MTR/K in the same size, pretty good bang for the buck.

15" rims add bang to the buck, so start there.

For best bang for the buck I don't really see anything beating Treadwright. I just got a set (4) of 285/70-17 (I know it's not the size you are looking for) Wardens for less than $550 shipped to my door. If you're not in a hurry like them on Facebook and sign up for their emails because they will occasionally send out sales. The last one was half off shipping or fifth tire free.

The Best bang for the buck will be a lightly used set (often half priced). You'll regularly see a set of 4 or 5 for sale on the forums or a local craiglist ad, just be ready to jump quickly when see it as good-priced, low-mile, no plug set of tires, they are quickly sold. I'd have no hesitation running any of the popular brands if lightly used --- in no order : BFGs, MTZs, Duratecs, MTRs, Toyos, Nittos, etc

Hercules Trail Diggers. Search the internet, you won't find a negative review. I have a set of 35's, and have been amazed with them. I got 35's for a 16" rim for $210ea. If they only came in 37's, they'd be my next tire too.
