Mud Tire Help?

Ok, so I am about to get some new tires for my new 2001 F250. I mostly do street driving and a little towing now and then but during hunting season i go through a lot of mud and in the summer, I do a lot of driving on the beach. I have yet to put this truck through the mud. With the diesel engine in it, I'm thinking that I'm gonna have to run mud tires. Like I said I do a lot of street driving so I would like a tire that lasts pretty well. Does anybody have any suggestions about what tires would be best for my situation? I plan on running 33" X 12.50 X 16 tires with a leveling kit. I know its a lot to look for out of a tire but I'm sure there is one out there that can do what I need it to. I was looking at the Mickey Thompson Baja Claw TTC but I can't find any reviews on them on a heavy truck.

I'd say go for the Goodyear Duratrac(305/70R16) or the Nitto Trail Grappler.

The Duratrac could be the more sensible option over an MT for a daily driver. This is more of an aggressive All terrain than a mud terrain but they certainly hold their own off-road. This tire will be more mild mannered when it comes to onroad driving than an MT will and this tire gets excellent reviews for its winter traction on ice as well.

The Trail Grappler is Nitto's newest MT. These are very similar to the Toyo Open Country MT but a little less expensive. This uses multi piece molds when building their tires and this makes a big difference in how well these balance out compared to other MT's.
