275/65r20 or 305/55r20

I'm trying to decide what size tires to run on a 2000 f250. Truck currently has 325/60r20s with a 4" lift. I'm dropping down to just a levaling kit and can't decide on tires. Shorter for gearing but with a wider foot print and a heavier tire. Or tall and skinny. Higher gears but lighter with less drag. Any thoughts?

Truck is used for mostly towing

I have 275/65/20 michelin ltx at2's on my '00 regular cab. I like em, great tire, fills the wheelwell, and didn't really see a mpg drop. They measure 34" tall, and towing...well, I didn't notice much, other than it felt more sure footed and stable coming from stock size tires. 70 mph is 1800 rpm fwiw.

Made in USA wheel spacers. And make sure the spacers line up with center hub and not lug nuts. They'll be @ 500$ for 4. Look up on you tube!
