I put Toyo AT 275/65R20 on my truck a year and a half ago and the road noise is minimal, any drives very smooth. I plan on staying with them when these wear out only I am going to step up to 35/12.5/20's.

My son had Nitto 295/60r20 and we were also very happy with them but i am a big fan of Les Schwab and their warranty and customer service so we replaced them with Toyo AT as well.

They redesigned their tread design this year and supposedly get 40% more life which isn't shabby as I have about 17,000 miles on these and they are still looking great. (& I am definitely not a passive driver.)

I had Cooper Zeon LTZ's and they wore extremely fast and were horrible offroad.

If I could choose an AT, I'd go with the Toyo AT2's or BFG AT KO's. Only thing I hated about the BFG's is they like to hold rocks.

hmm id go for one not on the list which is nitto trail grapplers which i know is classified as more of a mud tire but its more of a hybrid. cross between their terra grappler and mudding tire. so far im very impressed with them and will prolly buy them again after these but hopefully be goin even bigger tires next time

It's no surpise though, because my experience with Discount Tires is that half their tire apes have no "F-ing" clue how to balance a tire. I put a new set of BFG KDW tires on my challenger three months ago and it took 3 trips to get them balanced correclty. I actually ended up at a Firestone shop to get an alignment done and they show'd me the balance weights slapped all over the inside of the rim (criss-crossing weight strips over each other, etc). I put Michelin MS 2's on my wife's suburban two months ago and had to bring them back for rebalancing after driving down the street.

This is the third full set of high end tires I've purchased in three months (yeah, nuts to do that to three vehicles in the same year even, much less 3 months!), and I think I'm about done doing business with this organization. A letter to the upper management is in the works to highlight their shotty business issues! I wish we had more options for tire stores other than NTB or Discount. I need to find a 4x4 specialty shop in Houston!

Quick recap: I ordered the Nitto Terra Grappler's yesterday in size 275/60/20 to match the stock size on my truck. When they called this morning to tell me they were in, I went over and asked to examine them. All four tires were manufactured in 2007!!!!!!!! I told them I wasn't going to buy three year old tires at a "new" retail price. They had the same tires in 305/55/20 in the shop that were all made in 2010, so I reluctantly agreed when they showed me the computer said they would fit my truck. Well, they vibrate like hell at 70MPH, I can't turn full circle into a parking spot without feeling them rub, and they "feel" like the car is driving VERY sluggish and bogged down. I think I'll be telling them to stuff these back in the rafters and pull out some Michelin or Pirelli's instead. I'm not bumping up another $100 per tire for BFG's if A/T's run this sluggish and rough, and I think it's safer to stay with 275/60/20 if I'm not going to lift the body. Those 305's don't fit stock, no matter what the computer says.

You'd think you would get a better experience from a tire store when you have done this much business with them, but these guys are not built for real customer satisfaction in my opinion.
I ran 305/55/20 BFG A/T's with no problem. Loved the tires. NOT every ram is built the same tho. I didn't have any turning rubbing problems or anything. I have herd that this could be a problem after I spent money for the tires but I NVR had a problem. IMO.

Now Im running 305/55/20 Nittos and Love them, BOth brands are good IMO.
Im about to put on 35'' Nitto muds

I just went with Goodyear Duratracs in 285/70/17. Couldn't be happier at the moment.

Although not on the list, I just wanted to include the BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain TA... I've put 40,000km's on these and they are in fantastic shape... best tire I've ever used in my life... and I've used a lot...

I ran the wild peaks on my old truck before I sold it I loved those tires very smooth, wore well, and were excellent in just about all conditions(can't comment on mud or snow). Nitto got my vote, but my next tire will be the ATZ or the toyo open country at2 can't decide.
