Decisions, Decisions (BFG or Goodyear)

Alright so im finally gettin new wheels and tires for my the ranger. I already decided on gettin 15x8 soft 8's with a 4in bs but the tires is where im stuck (no pun intended). Right now it's between the BFgoodrich km2's or the Goodyear wrangler mt's. Im gonna be gettin 33x10.5 for sure, just not sure which is the better tire overall. i want something that'll handle well in the mud, clay, and snow but will also perform as well as a mud terrain tire can on road. the price between the two isnt really a factor but i will be gettin 5 so i have a full size spare. any input or advice will help a lot, thanks guys.

P.S. if at the very worst i cant come up with a verdict between these two im just goin BFG A/T's

having driven two identicle trucks with the same sized tires and the only difference being my truck has MT/R kevlars and my buddies truck has km2's:

either will be a great tire for you however I find the km2 to be more street friendly and the mtr to be slightly more agressive offroad.I've driven both trucks in all kinds of terrain (except sand) The actual differences is very minimal

I've only heard that mud tires suck in the snow.

I don't know if you know this, but the new MT/R with Kevlar are not avalible in a 33-10.50. The only 33'' Kevlar MT/R tire for 15'' rims avalible is 33-1250/15.
