Best Tires for Snow and all around

Ok, so my 12 F350 CC SRW still has the original Michelin 18 in LTX's on it. And its true, they really suck in any sort of snow. What recommendations do you guys have? Pics are also helpful.
Sidenote... I have been looking at the Toyo AT II 's and they look pretty nice. However, I'd like to explore all the options out there before I make a purchase.

People swear by Goodyear Duratrac. It is snowflake/winter rated and can be studded but yet the rubber is hard enough to run the tire all year round. I have Nitto Terra Grapplers and they're pretty good in the winter but they aren't snowflake rated. When my Nittos need to be replaced, I'm going with the Duratracs and will most likely run them year round. Don't think I'll get a dedicated winter tire although the Hankook iPike RW11 looks pretty awesome.

Duratracs. Best all around tire I've ever had. Good in snow, mud, and dry pavement. Pretty quiet on the highway. I had 30,000 miles on the set on my F150 when I traded up to the 250 but I expected an easy 50,000 out of them if rotated every 5000 miles. Can't wait to get a set on my new truck.

I'm running 325/60-20 Duratracs on my 13 F250. Although we don't get much bad weather here in West Texas we did get an ice storm a few weeks ago, about 3-4"s. I have to say I was not only impressed at how well the tires gripped but totally amazed at how it stopped in it.

I meant, I agree on the BFG ATs, up here in Montana, we get a lot of snow and ice mixed with chinook winds that melt everything for a while and then freezes up again, these tires seem to handle many situations with confidence and are great in the summer as well on the dirt, hauling wood, etc.

I love mine, and have them on the wife's expedition as well driving the kids to school and back every day, practice and back every day, in the city, and we got over 52,000 on the last set.

can't ask for a better all around tire and compound for us.

That sums it up nicely, its not the best at anything but I've used it in sand, snow, mud, and street with no issues.
