We have three sets of dollies, all from different manufacturers, 2 sets in 4.80 and 1 set in 5.70
The added height is nice with the larger tires, they handle the weight better, I feel better at highway speed but they are much heavier compared to the smaller tire counterpart.
As far as cheap tires, tell me where to find them, I just replace a 5.70 tire with the exact same brand and it cost $100 for a load range D

PlanB - look on eBay in the tire section and search 5.70-8 and you'll see Carlisle "USA Trail" tires in load range D for $56/ea, shipped.  Seller name is tire-easy, same one I got my 4.80 Carlisles from.  There's a few other brands on there offering 5.70's in load D but I dunno if I'd vary from Carlisle.

We run the hi-run tires. Not quite as good as the Carlisle but they are only $35 or so online, we get them under $30 from our wholesaler when we buy a few at a time. At half the cost of a Carlisle and getting about %80 life of a Carlisle it's more cost effective. You can even order them pre mounted on a 5 lug wheel for around $55 if you look.
