Default Tire options

I'm going to need new tires soon and was wondering about going bigger and a lil more aggresive.
1) I won't be in the mud much but wouldn't mind screwing around a cple times a year so I was just looking at all terrains
2) I don't want anything noisy going down highway
3) price is kinda an issue
4) what size can I go on stock 20's with the bilstein adjustable 5100's??? I DON'T want to use any spacers

I was looking at the bfg at t/a ko but heard on other pages that they aren't that good in snow, they suck in mud and even in heavy rain they slip around.
I like the way the toyo open country AT II's look but haven't checked price.

So I guess basically I want an AT tire that looks aggresive, handles good in snow, rain and a lil mud and is pretty quiet on the highway..... All for a relatively descent price. Lol.. Is there such a tire.

Let me hear some options!
Thanks

I was in the same boat with you. Leveled the truck with bilsteins and put nitto's terra grapplers 275 65 20. These tires are an inch taller then stock. I LOVE the new stance !!

How do you like the nito's? Are they pretty noisy on the highway?

I put Cooper Zeon LTZ's on my truck a few months ago, stock 275/60/20 size. Good aggressive look. Very impressed in all weather conditions and they are decent priced.

I put 275/60/R20 goodyear wrangler silent armours on my truck. Cost me 1400 installed. So far really like them, handle great in snow and ice. Haven't tried them out in mud yet.

I run the good year duratracs. Haven't been in the snow but they haven't left me stuck in mud or climbing hills with loose dirt. Thin I paid around $1600 or so otd for them but I am running a 285/60r20 which the few I found in this size were all pricey. They were cheaper than the bfg at. Not really any more noise than my friends terra grapplers. I don't even notice it.

I had silent armours on my truck before I got the Cooper Zeon's. Decent tire but I like the Zeon's a little better, plus the Coopers were cheaper and look more aggressive.

Thanks for the info guys!
Simba- I have to look into the coopers
Bucks- guess that's pretty much the going rate
RyanJM- is your truck lifted to fit those? If not, are they on stock wheels without spacers?
I figured I'd stay with 60 series because the 65 is a different class and cat quite a bit more so if I can go with 285/65 20 without rubbing and spacers, I might go that route
Thanks again!
