DC FCII'S are my vote. great looking, quiet, wear well. only problem is good traction on wet roads. if i would have slid, i might not have rolled! i hate when that happens! very deep tread when new so 1st 500 miles were a lil weird. best tire i've ever ran.

I went with the Hankook ATR's. Only have 1k miles on them, but they are good in the rain, ride well and are very quiet. The lack of noise really surprised me. Only one time off rode, but they handled well and had no issues. They look good, have an agresive sidewall, but don't scream AGRO. By far the best tire I have ever run.
Others have been:
BFG M/T
BFG A/T
Goodyear MTR
Yokohamas
Toyos
Mickey Thompson Bajas

I just went with the Kumho's again. I was going to try out the Toyos but I saved around 400.00 going the other way and I've had decent tire life from the Kumho's thus far. Maybe next time I'll try the Toyos.

FYI,
If you are looking for an E rated tire it'll limit the options quit a bit on available sizes.

I do want an E rated tire. I do a lot of towing and want to stay with an E tire.

Didn't noticed you have 20" wheels, so you're not that limited... I was thinking of my older 16" where there is not a lot to choose from.

I saw a truck today running the Nitto Trail Grappler tires and it looked saweet! I'm really leaning that direction. Anyone have experience with these? Good? Bad? Somewhere in the middle?

I need to pull the trigger tomorrow so if you've got an opinion, let me have it.

Picked up some dura tracs about 10k ago so i can't speak much too wear, really only a little louder than the stock rugged trails my truck came with at any speed, good ride, decent off road and seem excellent in the michigan ice and snow.

I had the ProComp XTerrains on my truck. Worst mistake I ever made. They wore horribly, and I rotate them evey 5K miles. They were also horrible in the snow. After sliding through a couple of red lights at intersections, I decided to get rid of them and put on some BFG All Terrains. The difference is night and day. I will never buy another Pro Comp tire again.

I run the 305x55x20 on the Excursion in my signature, but they are not as aggressive for what you are looking for. I helped my brother pick out a set of Cooper STT's for his truck, and they are fantastic, but I don't know if they come in a 20, as his were 285x75x16. But they are super aggrexive and great side-biters, and road noise is minimal.
Good Luck,

I have had a lot of tires and keep going back to BFGodrich ,ATs are a decent all around tire , muds are are great but my own opinion I think I lose a little mileage over the ATs , ( I run ATs in summer and MUds in winter ) muds clean out tread so well where ATs seem to gum up more , you will not be dissapointed , as far as D or E rating do you home work , like my 285-75-16 D rating has the same weight rating as a stock 265-75-16 E, good luck ,Larry, Oh almost forgot , 285-75-16 E rated in BFG is not available in raised white letter , home work ,research, take your time , get what you want

I have also ran BFG AT's for years. I do rotate every 5000 miles but have always gotten better that 50,000 miles on a set. They are very quiet, do Great in the Mud and Snow as well as wet pavement. They are also available in E class.

Ran BFG Ats for years good tire for an AT. Tried some Dick Cepeks FCIIs awesome tire wear very well, ride and handle great perhaps a bit more noise then the BFGs but wear much longer. Have had 285/75R16 and now 315/75R16 so size is not as big (as what you are wanting) but should be similar I would think. I sype these tires when new and they last even longer and have better winter traction to boot.....not for everone and if you are hard on the go peddle this tends to chunk out the tread if syped....for me it works well...

I just rode in a buddies truck and he has BFG AT's. They are extremely quiet. I'm wondering if the Mickey Thompson ATZ's would be about as quiet as I need quiet most, but then to be able to handle the elements and off road, if I need/want to. These look like the best ones to me. Any input?
