Best tire?

I just bought a '98 2500 4x4 24v diesel from Oregon DOT. Got er cheap and now i'm looking to put some new tires on her. Currently has 235-85-r16. Looking to fill the fenders a little more and found that 285-75-r16 will most likely do the job.

I'm looking forward to pushing through the deepest snow I can find. What is the best studdless snow tire? What about best all terrain tire? I want to run just 1 set year round, so I'm wondering if a snow only tire is a bad idea. Considering the BFG AT, and the Bridgestone winter dueler. Any thoughts or advice?

Also, I want to get chains on all 4 tires. Anyone have reccomendations for the chains with the most traction? If I could push more snow than my friends Ranger I would be happy.

Thanks for your advice.

The General Grabber AP's are usually listed as a good snow tire and all purpose tire.
