About to get new tires...what are the best??

Im about to have to start looking for new tires for my truck. I wanted to know what everybody has had good luck with. I want a aggressive tire but I also want them to last 60,000 or more miles. My tire size is 35x12.5x20 but I am thinking about getting ride of my lift and put on a leveling kit and run some 305x12.5x20. Im up for any ideas on what tires you guys have ran and got good miles out of them.

I am running BFG t/a k/o but they are expensive. I love the traction but they catch a few rocks. I have heard of guys getting 70k + but I am pushing over 600hp and will be happy to get 40k They take a beating out on the farm though I'm about 20k in and pretty impressed.
