Default Dumb question

I do 90% road use and 10% mild off road use

With a hemi engine do AT tyres give good grip and mileage on road as they look good as well as helping when do go off road.

Any recomendaitons in 275 60 20's please for good road grip but more agressive style

Most of the 20" AT type tires I've seen aren't what I would call agressive as far as the tread pattern goes but there are a few exceptions. The Nitto Terra Grappler and Cooper Zeon LTZ are the first two that come to mind.

I agree with that ^^^^ and would add that you should look at what Michelin offers in your area.

Yea the A/T tires out there are made for the road and some give a little bit of off road performance. I have the Mickey Thompson ATZs on my truck and they have a pretty good looking tread. They also have a M/T side bitter side wall on them for a little better off road capability. I like the tires a lot they make a little noise though..not bad though its bearable.

I like the 275/60R20 Yokohama Geolandar A/T-s. The have a nice pattern and a lot of tread depth. I have run them in the past and they wear very good, however, they do become a little noisy after about 5,000 miles.
