A lot depends on where you are located.. and what the track is like.

Most of the events I go to... the tracks have a lot of clay, are well watered, and are well packed for pulling. On these tracks... all-terrain tires seem to do that best. BFG All Terrains are very popular.

On looser, or muddier tracks... a more aggressive tire may work better.
