Tire Recommendations?

I've currently got the tires from the factory that have almost worn bald at 19K miles. (Don't blame me; I bought the truck at 17.5K) So, I'm about to start shopping for some new ones. My current tires are 275/65R20's. I'm looking for a tire that looks good, won't break the bank, doesn't require a lift, won't hurt the MPG's, and has a good life to it. Yes, I know I might as well ask for a leprechan with a pot of gold in my living room, but I'm just asking...

I don't do a lot of off-roading. An occasional ride on the beach is about it. But I do like the looks of the offroad tires, if they fit the other criteria.

I've been looking at 295/70/18 (factory is 275/70) Nitto Trail Grappers and they seem to be a pretty good price. I'm with you, don't want a lift or leveling either. I've also had a set of Mickey Thompson MTZ and after about 10k miles they looked brand new still. great tire as well. just my .02

Not too many. I'm just looking for a starting point.

I have bfg all terrains now and the 500 miles on them I love them. I had a set on a 150 and they lasted 50k and still had life when I sold the truck. I was also looking at the nitto terra grapplers and it was about $100 more for the bfgs. We have some trucks with michelins(which in my opinion are the best but a little more pricey) ltx. I had goodyear wranglers mt/r on my truck when I bought it last summer and they were loud. The bfg mud terrains are also loud but they look good. I would say nittos, bfgs or michelins. Here is a link to a forum I had going when I was looking for mine.
