I have the MT/R's with kevlar. They work well in the mud/clay as long as you air them down.

Clay plus road = BF A/T
Any road or obstacle plus "good enough" road = BF M/T

How often will you be in clay/mud? Long distances of just puddle jumping down trails?

I would take a close look at both the BFG KM2 and the Hankook DynaPro M/T RT03.
