need help deciding on new tires.

My falken Rocky mtn at/s are near bald. I would say 80 percent of my driving is on road the other 20 percent is on trails. I don't mud really. There's no soft sand here. and I was hoping to avoid a really aggressive tread until I got my lift. Should I even go with a all terrain? Or should I get something like the tires I have on here? Maybe something a tad bit more aggressive like the rugged trails, the Rocky mtns were kinda weak in the areas I did of road. Open to any suggestions.

I just got new Firestone Destination A/T tires on my truck. They look gnarly enough for me and they're quieter than the wimpy-looking goodyear trackers that were on my truck when I bought it. They are also the highest-rated all-terrain tire on Tire Rack's survey:

I got the Goodyear Wrangler Adventure's a couple of weeks ago.

Couldn't be happier with their wet/dry pavement and gravel grip, and they are very quiet on the highway. They are replacing the discontinued Silent Armor series in the Goodyear Wrangler line-up.

I took some pics and wrote some more about them in this thread, if you're interested:
