I'd go 35's. Should fit nice with your lift and handle the snow pretty good. If you are wanting better snow/wet traction and good towing charachteristics I would go with a more all-terrain type tire instead of the mud-terrain. But that's up to you and your preference. Definately get a load range E tire though.

I run a set of TOYO At's they do have a 315x75x16 I am running 295x70x16 and I love the tires they are quiet on the highway with zero bounce or sway since I haul a large goose neck (when my truck is running lol) I also live in florida and the tires handle our sugar sand with ease just keep em rotated and they will last a long time I rotate around 5k miles... BFG AT's are also a good tire but I opted for the TOYO for price and better wear pattern...

The Nitto Terra Grapplers are supposed to be great. I know a few people who run them and love them.

I have a few buddies that have run them before and they said they wouldnt run them again... One had a 250 duramax and the other a 99 f350 they both said the same thing, if you don't rotate every 3-5k they wear funny and begin to bounce and neither had as much luck in sand as the toyos or the BFG's thats just my experience...

I had set of Cooper Discover S/T 35's and the were awesome tires. They were killer in the snow with very little tread left.
