Recommendations?? 37 or 38 for a 20

So I can't decide what to get... Well I know what I want, 38 x 15.50 nitto mud grapplers but i don't have an extra 2400 bucks sitting around... anyone running 36x15.50's or the 355/60's?? I feel like there is so few tires (nitto mt's, toyo mt's, and mickey's) are there other brands?? I'm running a 7" lift now with 325/80/16 falken wild peaks (absolute junk) and they look small.. i picked up some 20" x 10 rockstars just need tires! any ideas??

Kumho kl71 mt and Hankook Dynapro mt both come in 37" and 38" too. Everyone I know who has Nitto mud grapplers hates them. They look cool but are very noisy and wear quickly on the street. The only tires I will buy anymore are Toyo mt's. I had 51000 on my last truck/set (35-12.50r20) on a Dodge mega cab diesel. I always kept them at 65psi and rotated them once at 22500 miles. They still had ok tread on them when I traded the truck in. The first half of the tread seems to wear quickly and they start to get a little noisy but they wear like iron. For such an expensive investment I will stick with Toyo because they last. I should mention that I am a construction superintendent and the tires on that Dodge spent half of there life on job sites and pulling my 36' Weekend Warrior to the dunes so they didnt have an easy life! The Nittos on my Excursion are about worn out and will be replaced with Toyo.
