What tires for my 6.4

I realize tire choices are like opions, everyone has one but I am looking for tires for my new 6.4 lariat cc.
I have always been a bfg a/t guy but I thought I would look around a bit.
I am planning on doing a readylift 2.5 inch lift kit and I am looking for some tires in around the 35inch range. The tires I was looking at were the BFG a/t, the Nitto terra grappler and the pro comp xtreme a/t.

I am in Canada and I need something that is good in the wet and snow and I also tow my quads so I end up on gravel forestry roads, that is my extent of my off roading. I even looked at the nitto dune grappler but I think they would be horrible in the snow/wet...but they look cool. Noise is a consideration, I test drove a new 6.4 with a levelling kit and nitto mud grapplers but I said no way cuz the noise was too much for me.

Also I dont want a tire that I have to go hacking up my inner fenders a little rub on the inner trailing arm is ok.

Thanks guys

Ps anyone have some pics?

I like the goodyear wrangler ats I know a guy at the outer banks that has a set and has had good service. They are excellent in sand anyway.

i have the bfg's on my 6.4. i like them alot. hardly any raod noise and they have lasted for a long time. if i could give you one piece of advise though, whatever tire you choose make sure the pressure rating on the tire is high enough to prevent the low tire signal (tps) from going off. if you can prevent it you don't have to deal with it. mine are fine but i only run a 32" equivelant. it is a metric size so...... other than that i think if you have had good luck with the bfg and are willing to pay for them like i have and am, go for it.
