Need new tires and want road tires that look as good as off-road tires

Any suggestions. I can't tell the type of rim I have, but I know its aftermarket. The tires that came with the truck were Mickey Thompson Baja 35x12.5x20. I don't want to spend 500 a tire and would like a better road tire that is as good looking as an off-road tire. Been looking around but I really want to hear you guys suggestions.

I dont think there are any onroad tires that look near as good as a true mud terrain. But nitto I believe came out with a new radial all terrain type tire that is supposed to look and perform well. But like any good tires they won't be cheap. But 35s shouldn't cost you 500 a piece I wouldn't think

I'll throw in another vote for the Nitto Terra Grapplers. I don't ever take my truck into the mud on purpose (costs too much when stuff breaks, plus it's my DD) but for all other conditions they work incredibly well , snow, ice, etc.

Mastercraft Coursier CT's, LOVE mine, LOVE them. Better than my Nitto MT's on my summer wheels. When they go, I will replace with the same Coursier CTs that are on my winter wheels.

Check out Goodyear Duratrac. They have fantastic traction and are not too loud on the street.

Check out the cooper discovery ST MAXX tires. Mine came with my truck and they are wearing good and have good traction in the rain and dirt. I haven't tested them in icy snow yet though.

Another awesome choice, I almsot got these but the MC's were 1/2 the price, and made by the same manufacture.
