Mud Tires on a F250?

So I am looking to eventually purchase a set of mud tires for my truck. I had posted another thread in the Off-road forum but I was browsing the internet, and with the fact a lift kit for a 2.5" lift will only set me back 100$. My original line of thinking doesn't apply.

So I am still going to go with the Dick Cepek DC-2 rims, but with a 2.5" lift, and some sort of 37" mud terrain tires.

But I am not too sure what to go with for good mud tires still, so any advice?

Nice truck,

I was looking at the 36X15.50R20LT from Mickey, in their Baja MTZ Radial SLT, however I do not know how much of a lift I can get away with with them. The less of a lift the better in my mind.

So with a 2.5" lift think I should go with the 35s or 36s?

I also have Mickey Thompson MTZ's, they're an awesome tire, and so far they are wearing very nicely

I am also planning on a lift/tire upgrade by Fall. Toss-up between Mickey Thompson MTZ's, and Toyo Open Country MTs. I've heard great things about both, but which will wear longer under a Super Duty?

99 F-250 Super Duty, 4X4, CCSB. AKA: The Liberty Wagon.
