Default All-Terrain vs. Mud tires?

I am currently looking at buying some 33X12.5R15 tires. My question is how much more roll resistance is there from some BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO to some Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac? And how much of a fuel economy drop will i see between the two tires?

The Duratrac will be a little worse on mileage but hardly noticeable. Both will be worse than a street tire. The BFG will last longer but sucks in mud. If you plan to be hitting mud alot then go with the Duratrac.

its sad 33's Duratrac cost less then 31's duratrac around here, I just double checked this for a buddy of mine around here he was debating on body lifting.
