tire poll

I'm slowly building a fist gen ranger pre-runner, but it's going to be for the mid-atlantic Terrain (cornfields, wooded paths, snow, sleet, mud, not a lat of sand) i know i know it's not a 4wd. but it's my truck, and I'm going to do it my way. every one who has a fist gen ranger, s-10, dakota around where i live slams them. so mine is going to be lift. so which tire do you all think would be best for the Terrain, and would looks the best?

The DC FC II looks like it would be terrible in mud.
The Mud Kings look like a cheap no name tire, very little sidewall protection, little protection between lugs. Basically an old school cheap mud terrain that would suck in rain, light snow, has vulnerable sidewalls, probably more likely to get punctures etc.
Out of that list, I say the STTs or MTZs.
I had the STTs in 33x12.50R15 on my sport trac when I lived in Oregon, and spent a lot of time out in the mountain trails in mud, 12-18"+ of snow, in the dunes and the tires were great. Good street manners, long wearing, good all around tire. Never had any punctures or problems. They are a little skatey (yeah I made that up) on ice or really light snow but what isn't. They were better than some non-siped mud terrains I had, and if you had them siped on the center treads I bet they would rock in light snow/sleet/ice.

Didn't realize you were picking tires based on how the sidewalls look.

KM2s have solid white lettering. And they are actually a great all around tire.
