Whats your 'go-to' tire for a 20 inch rim?

This 06 is my first truck with 20s, it has almost new 4 ply wranglers on it, but I feel like their time is limited. I think my state has completely lost its road budgets because the potholes are bigger than my 275/70/20s, and I've destroyed 4 ply tires on my 05.

I was thinking about ditching these on craigslist and getting something 6-8 ply to be safe for a few hundred difference. But all I can find is 4 plys to replace it with...

Also, since last winter consisted of driving in a foot of snow several times. I'm looking for something ATR... some real gravel throwers because I dont have mudflaps yet.

I've had some bad experiences with Cooper E range tires losing balance after a few miles at 500 hp on my Duramax. Happened to two sets.... very aggravating when a set of tires was 1300 dollars and vibrating like nuts on the interstate.

If I could find a D range BFG stocker size I might pull the trigger. I've never found a tire that wears as well as a BFG while maintaining both aggression and low road noise. Fantastic snow tire too.

Coopers had a lot of road noise from their ST Maxx tire too. Although I'm not surprised. I could never take a tire that was louder than my truck, and I HEAR it a lot now everyone seems to run M/Ts.

If your not planning on smoking them off, I'd buy the Michelin LTX MS2. I put them on all of our work truck, and have had close to 100,000 miles before having to replace them. They cost a little more but definitely cheaper then buying two sets in the long run. I've personally never seen a better tire for wet conditions. Excellent traction. Just my .02.

I found a similar size tire to my Hankooks, Michelin LTX MS2 275/65/R20 $312.00 each. My Hankooks size 275/55R20 run $166.00 each. These are Amazon.com prices.
