Cool 38s or 37s, khumo or nittos? best place to by them

okay im looking to get new tires for my 2001 F250 crew cab 7.3l, with a 8" lift
im running 20" wheels right now with matching spare

im stuck between running 37x13.5r20 or 38x15.5r20
and then khumo road venture MTs or Nitto Trail grapplers

right now im running 35x12.5r20 hancooks and they suck!! and look tiny but I bought all 4 with 75% tread for $200 bucks for all 4 so you cant beat that,

but right now im deployed so the wife is driving the truck with the tiny wheels for now tell I get back and throw some bigger ones on there, no point for her to wear down a brand new set when I got these 35s.

ive ran the 37x13.5r20 khumos before and I loved them , barley rubbed at full turn, they worked great they were on the truck when I bought it and they had about half tread and I put another almost 20k miles on them before I found these 35's for $200.

but for another 200-300 bucks more I could run 38s and I was wonder how well theyd fit under there or if I should just stuck with the 37s

but I heard these nittos do pretty good too,

I was wondering if you guys knew any site that had good prices on tires or if you guys suggest any other tires?

The Nitto Trail Grapplers are 25-30K tires for sure. They are very light so they won't tax the suspension and brakes like the 38/15.50's will.
Toyo is the only 38/15.50/20 or 18's that I have seen. If I am wrong I would sure like to know who else makes them.
The 38" tires are around 40lbs heavier and you will know it. But they are 50K tires more if your good to them. Les Schwab is where I got mine.

from the specs on the khumo it says from the 37x13.5r20 (85lbs) to the 38x15.5r20 (95lbs) is only a 10 pound difference

Nitto makes a 38x15.5r20 for a decent price too
