Default Need Feedback - 285/65/20 or 305/55/20 for my Big Horn 4X4 with a 2.5" Daystar

Gents,

I'm looking at upgrading my tires. My guess is that there is a thread already on this topic, I just have not found it yet. I've got a Big Horn 4X4 with an "almost leveling" 2.5" kit.

Between 285/65/20 and 305/55/20, which is preferred?

The tire I am looking at is the BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO. Specs are as follows:
285/65/20 is a 34.7" tire.
305/55/20 is a 33.4" tire.

Questions:
1. Are there other brands I should be looking at?
2. I want height without the rub. Is the wider tire or the taller tire more likely to cause a rub?
3. Which looks better to you?
4. Anyone have photos of a similar set up? I think the 305's are more common; however, the 285's are where I am leaning.

Thoughts?

Thanks.
