Tires: toyo open country a/t II or falken wildpeak a/t?

I'm getting the new HRE TR45 wheels for my rig. They are only available in 20". I'm getting satin black, 20x9, -12mm offset (4.5" bs). My rig has a AEV 3.5" dual door rd suspension. Looking for 35/12.50/20 or 325/60/20, d load rating. I had on my previous rig 325/60r20 bfg km2's. They mentioned either the fallen wildpeak a/t's (d rated)or the new toyo open country a/t II's (e rated). I havent seen the new toyo's but hre said they could get them. Is the difference between the d and e load rating that important? thanks in advance for the help and advice. Attachment 55265

E will be stiffer/higher load rating, slightly harsher ride.

If those are the only two options you want I would go Toyo just because I dont like the falkon tread.

Toyo makes a great tire. I had the Open Country tires for two different rigs including my JK. They wear like steel and they're not as loud as some other tires out there. Toyo gets my vote.

I have the Falkens in a 37" for a 18" rim and I have to say so far I'm quite happy with them. Road manners are perfect. They are very quiet. Off road has been pretty decent as well. The tread does not clean out that great in thick mud, but honestly that is to be expected, there has to be some compromises right? But that is fine with me because I'd rather bypass the mud hole anyway. However, a couple weekends ago at DOA we went through some pretty deep water/mud holes and not once did it feel like they were going to let me down.

I think for a DD/weekend wheeler they are a pretty good tire. I have never had the Toyos so I won't comment as far as a comparison. I think I would buy these again, but I think in the future I would probably lean more towards a more aggressive tire.

I was also trying to decide between the same two tires, went with the Toyos and am extremely happy
