Unless you're in a situation where you are in deep or thick mud, you're better off with AT tires, from an all around standpoint. I've driven through a lot of junk with various AT tires, ranging from the original Goodyear Wrangler Radials to Kelly Safaris to BFG TA/KOs, Long Trails, and Rugged Trails. I've been stuck when I got in over my head, but I've done the same with Super Swamps and other MT tireads, too. I went up a steep mountain two-rut with nearly bald Rugged Trails (OEM on my Pro4X) in nearly a foot of sbow with little more than a bit of tire spin, but no stopping or getting stuck. For a hard core off road rig in muddy areas, sure, MTs are great. But for regular driving with some offroad, stick with the AT.
