Default tax return= tires!!

whats up guys!! ok here is the deal i need some of your expert advice, im buying either nitto terra grapplers or general grabbers (probably the nittos i found them for 1099.00 shipped) should i spring the extra cash and get the LT rated tires or will the standard tires be fine? the size im looking at is 305 55 20 I installed a 2" ready lift leveling kit and had it aligned so im ready to go! i travel 50 miles a day to work on crazy roads + highway roads. if you guys had your pick of these two tires what would it be? also any of you guys run either of these size tires on your trucks? i have an '10 big horn what PSI should i run in them when i get'em ( COME ON FISHIN SEASON!!!! )
THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

I'd add the Cooper Zeon LTZ's to your list of possibilities, as well.

I've never owned the Terra Grapplers, so I can't speak for them first-hand. But when I was in the market for tires, I researched/compared the Nitto's and the Zeon LTZ's. The Terra Grapplers had way too many negative reviews for me (fast tire wear, etc.) , I didn't want to take the chance on them. The Zeon's had next to no negative reviews, and seemed like the right choice, so I got em. They're an awesome all-terrain tire, I recommend to them everyone who asks. The BFG's get a lot of positive reviews, also. I would have gotten them if they weren't so expensive.

I got mine from Discount Tire Direct. They're currently priced at $282 per tire on their website. It's worth doing your homework, they do price-match, so check lots of other sites. It can save you a lot of money.

I couldn't find many sizes in 20s for my Ram in Cooper AT, so I wrote them off. I want a 285 or 295.

^^^ That's the problem I found, too. So I just got the 275/60's and called it a day.
