need tire advice

i need to buy new tires for my stock 08 f350 lariat crew cab long bed with 20's on it, i've done some searching on here on the subject, i guess i'm just looking for advice. i just use the truck for daily driving and highway drives, i'm not looking for offroad aggressive tires, i have it narrowed down to the toyo open country a/t 2's, it looks like they are pretty popular and have alot of good reviews. i'm concerned about mpg loss and noise, i'll probably stick with the stock size, i dont have any expierience with lifts or different size tires. thanks - any input would help

I have Toyo A/T on the truck now in stock size, and a set of 295 A/T2s waiting to go on. The Toyos seems to be very good.

I talked to a guy the other day with the Toyo OC ATIIs on this truck. He had just put them on after wearing out the set of Toyo OC ATs. He said the ATIIs were quieter than the ATs were.

Falken Wild Peaks A/T or Rocky Mountain(discount tire name. Same tire) They have a great on road ride and do pretty good off road. I hunt S. FL swamps with water, mud and sand. Never had a problem. I have owned them in 37" on my off road jeep and now have them on my excursion. 50k warranty & a lot cheaper than Toyos or Nittos. Here is a pic of the 285/75/16 I bought for my excursion
