Tire suggestions for 20x12 rims

I have an 04 Excursion with a 5" Rough Country lift on it. I currently am running 33" Nitto Mt on the rims b/c I got a good deal on the rim/tire set. The tires are worn and need replacing so I want to move up to a 35" to fill in the wheel well a little more. I was thinking about going with a General At2 35x12.5 on the 20x12 rim. Can anyone offer any suggestions/opinions? I don't drive the truck much at all (maybe 5k a year) so I don't really want to spend a ton on new tires.

Try Hankooks

On my 2006 Ram 3500 (forgive me I have sinned) I bought it at about 60k with Hankook Dynapro ATM's with about 10k already on them. Currently sitting at 100,000 with a little life left and they've held up really well with no road noise or real issues despite some hard use towing. Best part is they're relatively inexpensive as far as tires go.

I wouldn't run anything less than a 13.5" wide tire on a 12" wide rim. .

While I agree with Snake, I have seen trucks with the combo you've mentioned and they don't look too bad. The plus side to that tire/wheel combo is that running 50 psi wouldn't put you on the center of the tread.
