    Errols tyres. THey are in EC but deliver countrywide anyway.
    why 16"?
    15" are cheaper and your tyres will be cheaper too. More sidewall is good too.

    Well 15" steel pro whites are cheaper but the tyres not so much any more.

    33 x 10.5 x 15 are bloody expensive, on par with 255/85-16

    Because both are unusual sizes so you don't get economies of scale.

    33x12.5 should be reasonable
