Suggestions on AT tires??

Hey guys I have been on here on and off for about 10 months now and have used some of the info I have read in the forums to get good results with my 05. I am now asking if there is any good suggestions on tires. I have an 02 F250 with a 6' RCD lift, air ride bags in the rear and currently running 35X12.5 R20 Toyo Open Country M/T. These tires were on the rims when I bouth them and are nearing the old scrap heap. I dont do any serious off roading but do tow a boat time to time on some gravel or light trails, some sand when I hook up the bikes or quads but most part is daily driving on the road. Any good suggestions on a good all around tire? I am looking mostly towards the TOYO Open County All Terrains.
Any info would be great.
Thanks

Goose how long have you had your tires, how many miles and do you rotate when you get your oil changed?

I might have 11-12K on them and I have rotated them once or twice.

are they wearing pretty well and have you had this brand of tires before? Just trying to get an idea of tread life.

They seem like they are. This is my first Toyo tires. I like the ATs but I do regret not getting the MTs.

Why regret the choice? I agree the looks of the MT are great but can be a little loud on the highway. Not as loud as some I have heard but as a daily driver for me a little more then I would like. I dont do much off roading the would require the MT.

Look better. I go off the road a good bit during the winter.

Do you want a tire you can get miles out of or do miles not matter at all to you. I run BFG AT's, 10 ply and they are great in the sand but if you want more that 20,000 miles out of a tire don't get them. I didn't pull very much at all with this set of tires on. I have friends that have tried these tires and their BFG AT's all wore out before 20,000. I am actually looking for a different set of ATs also if anyone has good ones in mind.
