A/T or Mud

Im currently looking to upgrade to some 31x10.50r15's for this winter. I drive the jeep a few times a week but its not my only vehicle. Work is only 5 miles down the road and road noise isnt a big deal on a jeep so is there any positive to going with a mud tire. I want good traction this winter and currently looking at the dunlop mud rover, I had those on a bronco and it was a tank couldnt get it stuck if I tried, and I dont remember how they were in the rain. Thats the biggest thing I'm wondering about is hydroplaning, dont seem to have any issues with the current tires but they are in no way aggresive. If I go with an A/T looking at the firestone destination a/ts as they have great reviews and a great price. I do not plan on going on any trails in this jeep for awile so that is not a factor. Biggest factor is price at the moment, any suggestions if anyone has a cheap place to look for tires or a certain tire to get? thanks

I had the destination at's on my ram 1500, did fine. I am running dayton timberline at's on the yj 30x9.50's. Ride nice, do great in rain, do fine in snow too.

My jeep came with 30x9.50 Destination A/T tires when I got it. So far they have been pretty good. The road noise isn't bad even after 8 hours. I've wheeled in sand (aired down) and trails with mud. This is my DD so I like A/Ts for that reason and they still can get you where you want to go.

Toyo open country a/ts are great tires too. Awesome in mud and great on the road. That's what I had on mind previous to my wrangler mt/rs.

I just bought my second set of Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs. Obviously, I really like them. The are between a mud and all terrain and are also snow rated. I also run these on my 09 Tundra dbl. cab. I paid $667.00 delivered from Tirerack.

I had 31x10.5 bfg all terrains and switched to 33x10.5 mud terrains, and the difference was dramatic.... im really impressed with the mud terrains.
