If it were my truck, I'd get Mud Terrains but in your situation, I'd do All Terrains.

I live where it snows a bunch and I have the AT's. Never had an issue on either my 2wd Excursion or my DRW.

I live in Canada and I love my Goodyear Duratracs, they cost a little bit more but they are amazing in winter. Only down side is they have a two ply sidewall but I run mine at 55psi front and 50 rear in winter with no problems. Summer time I bump them up to 60 front and 65 rear unless towing then its 60 front 80 rear. I had 325/65r18 BFG A/Ts on my F150 and I hated them, if I wasnt in 4wd I wasnt going anywhere. But then again that was a 13" wide tire vs the 275/70r18s I have on my F350. Looking at the Rugged Terrain they look like they will suck on ice due to the lack of siping. Another tire to check out would be the BFG Commercial T/A Traction tires, run those on a few of our work trucks and they hold pretty well on ice and haven't tested them too much in snow. Just my opinion and experiences

All are good but the BFG's and Michelin Revo's are all highly rated and get 60-70K miles on a set. The Rugged terrrains have a bad rating compared to the other two I listed.
