The big thing on a Ural is the sidewall strength, so you are limited in 19" tires.

I have run the egg shaped uralshinas and have a Duro on the rear now, and it seems to be holding up well. The dealer in Ohio, heindl engineering, gets $69.95 for them.
Ural rims aren't too round either, so i suggest trying dynabeads in them.
Some of the guys have been running Avons, with great success.
Avon MKII
4.00S1965S
4-ply sidewall and tread
maxload = 640lbs @ 36 psi
load range = B
And a few of the guys run Excelsiors. Great mileage, but they suck in mud. I think they run around $80.

If you get a chance, go to www.sovietsteeds.com
The forum has a lot of feedback on tires and other things.

p.s.: I have the harbor freight tire changer if you need it to put on the tires, just swing by and I'll give you a hand. I am in Hendersonville.

200 patrol, blue.
