Help with tires

So I need tires but am torn on which ones to get. right now I have toyo at's and theyre not bad but they wore quick and they are not aggressive enough for me. My truck is a daily driver but in the summer sees mud here and there and in the winter I use it to haul sleds so snow performance is very important to me (both deep snow and hardpack) I am leaning towards another at tire like the DC FC-II's or the Mickey Thompson ATZ's but am open to mud tires too. If anyone has any suggestions or experiences with either of these tires or any other ones please help me out. also anyone who runs a mud tire in snowy conditions please let me know what you think of em. thanks for the help!

mud tires are ok in the snow but worthless on the ice.

yeah thats kind of what I hear. I mean my toyos pretty much blow in the ice anyways so I'm kind of leaning towards the mud tires anyways... If I get mud tires I'm just not sure which ones. I hear good things about the bfg km2's and a friend of mine loves his. but I'm not sure
