Just because they are more readily available does not make them cheaper

Yes, if you factor in shipping(if you can't wait for a regular shipment to come in) they can be more expensive.

Now this isn't considering the online pricing, this is with the local stores and what they keep in stock. A lot of places around here don't even keep 35s in a 15 inch in stock anymore

I dont know what tire stores you deal with but out of the 5-6 I deal with, there is no shipping charges. They just order them and typically have them in a day

I work in a tire whse. Someone pays for shipping, and it isn't the whse. If they add it to the tire price, or if they have normal trucks from one store to the other(if its a chain) than prob no shipping. But I'm rural areas like here, usually the customer pays for shipping. Unless they can wait for a regular delivery.

My tires stores get deliveries from their warehouses everyday out to the sticks, so tires get delivered everyday, so there is never freight

What prices are you getting for a 33/10.50/15 and a 285/75/16. because every where i look, internet and local , 15s are cheaper, by far

The 33x10.50s are about $7 a tire cheaper here, due to the oddball size. In 33x12.50 though, they are roughly $20 a tire cheaper (some more, some less, $20 being an average)

My point exactly. 15" are cheaper

Your reading that incorrectly.. the 33x10.50 are cheaper, but in a 12.50 the 16" rim is cheaper. Sorry, I typed that up kinda crappy. Anyways..
Back to the issue at hand.. I still need to find a set of rims to wrap larger tires around, because I really don't want the stock 235/75s with a 4 inch lift. I don't really want to go to a 33x12.50, just seems too wide for what I need, and would rub if I read correctly. So what are my options for a 33" tall tire, narrower than a 12.50? I can find 10.50s, but only in a BFG AT and MT, and also Super Swamper Thornbirds (HA!). So what would be a good fit for an f150 with a 4 inch lift? (preferably a 33" or metric equivalent)

I would use your STOCk 15x8 wheels and get 33/10.50/15 tires. That way you save money by NOT buying wheels and buying a cheaper 15" tire. And you can fit a 33/12.50/15 on your truck w 4" of lift.

Christ! I have 32/11.50/15 on my stock ranger and they dont rub

Stay away from swampers unless they are radials. Bias tires flat spot over night and take about 5 miles to get round again
