Tow Rig: Truck Tires?

Alrighty, its time to replace the tires on my pickup. 2014 Chev High Country, with a 2" level kit.

Curious as to what tires everyone likes? I have 20" wheels now, and it has been recommended to me to get new tires to further diagnose the "Chevy Shake" that I posted recently. I admit, it could be a tire issue, as my tread is down to about 30%.

What do you guys like? I am open to either an AT or a MT, however, I want to retain a good ride and quiet, (no road hum) Also, I want longevity on tire wear.

Options are plentiful:
BFG
Toyo
Nitto
General
Bridgestone
Goodyear
Etc.

My hands down favorite tire right now is the nitto ridge grappler. The G2 terra grappler is an amazing tire as well and I think there is a 60k warranty on the G2 as well.

I’ve put a set of ridge grapplers on my taco, my F150, my buddy’s new 250, my brothers 4Runner pro... fantastic tire that is quiet and wears great.

Also if it’s leveled, run a 285/55/20 or 295/55/20

Previous truck was an older Silverado- ran General Grabber AT2 tires, loved them. First set lasted about 65K miles, second set had about 10K on when I sold the truck. Quiet on the road, no handling weirdness, plenty of traction on the boat ramp. As I recall, priced lower than competing brands like BFG and Toyo.

Note- just checked on TireRack.com, looks like the AT2 is being discontinued for the AT3. I would assume it would hold up as well as the AT2.

Have Cooper Discoverer HTP tires. They're not aggressive looking tires, but they are quiet and ride much better than the first gen Terra Grapplers that were on them before. I think they also have an 80k mile warranty and very reasonably priced. IMO if you don't do anything more off roading than dirt trails, there is no need for an A/T tire.
