i just recently picked up those exact size big o mud terrains for my k5, they seem to be really good in deep snow. same kinda tread pattern as the MTR i think

i like the big o bigfoot xt. they work well in most conditions, not the best on solid ice, but what is without studs. there a decent price, last a long time, wear evenly and run well aired down. i like em so much i got 2 sets lol 31's and 33's.

Toyo open countrys aren't on your list but I liked em on my old dodge,didn't wear to bad and not much road noise for a mt.

i went with 315/75/16 MTR

other tire on my list was the bfg mud
in my experience all terrains with any width love to hydroplane and act like tobogans
the bfg doesnt have the centre stripe the mtr has for road driving = will not like hiway miles as much in regards to carcass flex building heat on longer trips
I have a long hatred of goodyear that I am hoping these tires defeat.

i did this to a set of 37's for a customer in whistler and his reviews were he couoldnt belive the difference in ice and snow on and off rd and he runs a plow truck for a living so hes used to playing in the cold stuff ... they grabbed so hard he hard troubles getting em to break free ... thats on a tj and all they wanna do is spin tire :dontknow:

duratracs are awesome in the snow and they are studdable. im thinking of getting one set for summer and a studded set for winter.
