Help me decide on tires

I am stuck.
Started to pull the trigger on my 2018 F350s lift. Then backed off. Now I am at it agin.
I pretty much have decided to run the 2 1/2" Ready Lift SST with Bilstein 5100s. Not really looking to level, I tow so I am looking to keep a rake. Critique away.
I really am having a hard time deciding on 37s or 35s. My brains says to run Nitto G2s in 35 11.50 20 F. Everything else says find a good 37
I am thinking for a wheel the Hostile H105 exile in 0 offset, the gray one
Gears in my truck are 3.55s
So 35s or 37s?
Which tire brand?
Ill be lifting it myself and try and order the tire wheel combo pre mounted and balanced and do it all in my shop.
Already added AMP research power running boards

Help me decide on tires

How much do you tow? For heavy towing, I would look at the 35s since smaller diameter tires put less load on the engine compared to 37s. I run 35x12.50x20 Toyo At2 Extreme tires. Nice and quiet and have decent off-road capability.

Brains win

Follow your brains. Towing with 3.55's. You will be happy with the 35's.

I had both the Nitto Ridge Grappler and Toyo Open Country AT2 and really liked both. The Nittoís had about 50k when I traded truck in and probably had another 5k or so and the Toyo I got 72k out of. Canít go wrong with either one in my opinion!

Nitro Ridge Grappler. Best tire Iíve ever had. Great off road traction, great road manners, no road noise. 30k miles so far and eye balling it Iíd say they have 50 percent life left.

Help me decide on tires

I run the 35x12 AT2's bone stock no lift on black rhino wheels.

My decision over 37's was:
No lift needed, looks great
Spare tire fits still
Towing
And Forscan can set the correct speedometer ratio so odometer/speed is exact.
