Which tire to run

Hi y'all I'm getting a new jeep soon and am trying to get a list of AM parts that i want for mods I'm going to make, this will be my first jeep but I've had friends in the past that had true mudders but I'm not going as extreme as they are. I have narrowed down the tire to either Goodyear DuraTracs, Nitto Trail Grapplers or TOYO open country AT/IIs. the reason being that my jeep will spend about equal time on Mud and pavement or maybe slightly more on pavement. But I'm undecided on the wheels and the size as Ive been told lots off conflicting stuff in the past and was hoping y'all could shed some light on my problem.

My '07 had a 2.5" lift with 33" Duratracs on 15x8 wheel and loved the stance and the tire. I also had 1.5" spacers. The Duratracs are great in the snow as their marked M+S. I haven't done much mudding so I don't know how they perform, but I bet they would be very good in that element as well.
I now have a 4" lift, but still running the same tire and wheel. I'll be in the market for 35's soon. Probably will go with the Duratracs, MTZ's or Dick Cepeks. I've heard that the KM2's are slippery in wet conditions. If you want loud mud tires that are siped for the rain then you can go with the Nitto Mud Grapplers. My buddy has some and they are super loud. If you do go that route then I recommend a power booster for your stereo. Loud loud loud... Good Luck!

Thanks whitesport my job has me moving to Kansas City soon, and I'm already dreading having to drive my long bed 4Ton F250 this winter until my jeep comes in. I've had issues in the past with pickups randomly losing it in ice and snow

I would also look at the Goodyear MTR's.
