Tire Suggestions....?

I am debating whether to get Dakota A/T's or Dakota M/T's made by Cooper tire under the Definity name. I am currently running 265/70/R16 Dakota A/Ts (not even a year old)which are pretty good year round as well as some off roading. I want to upgrade to a 285/75/R16 because I just cranked the tbars and put in gm shackles with KYB Monomax shocks.

I am looking at these tires because i don't want to spend too much money. I just want to know whether i should go for the A/Ts or M/T's in the 285s OR just keep my current tires.

And also, i assume the M/Ts won't be too great in the snow?
Anyway here are the pictures for both.

A/T


M/T


Suggestions please?

im probably just going to wait for my tires to wear down enough to get new ones. i really like the mud country. will most likely go with them.

My MTZs were amazing in both the light snow found on roads and 4' snow drifts we went plowing through.

Between your tire choices though I would say Mud's, once i got a set i wont go back to anything less aggressive.
