Which tires to get?

Hey guys I have a 08 w/ a 2" ready lift, and currently run 35" BFG A/T's. Im looking to get a different a/t tire b/c these didn't last long at all. I am open to run 37's if they ride good, but i had a couple sets of 37's and never could get them balanced right. I need some advice on a good tire thats 12.5" wide on a 20" factory rim, Thanks for any suggestions!

I've seen several people running the Nitto Trail Grappler and Toyo M/T in a 37" with factory 20" wheels. More aggressive than an A/T tire though.

Toyo is 13.5"'wide. I think the NItto is a little more narrow. Might be 12.5"

Cooper fan, Tread is almost the same as a Toyo, and cheaper. I have a set of 35x12.5 on my wrangler over half worn, balanced good and are still kinda quiet for a MT. I know the wrangler is a little lighterthan my SD, but they have worn well, have good grip. But they did chunk a little on two trips over the Rubicon.
