Default Need help with new tires and wheels

I'm looking for some new wheels and tires. I live in Minnesota and we get lots of snow so I want something that does good in snow because I only have 2wd and I like ice fishing and the lakes aren't really plowed and my driveway is really steep. I also do alot of hunting and need something for mud/dirt too but I only make min wage so I can't buy 2 sets. Currently I have 14 inch rims with 225/70 14r firestone indy 500 tires which I used this winter and they suck in snow. I'm going to keep them for the summer but I was wanting to go up to 15s if possible for hunting/winter.

I love the Commercial Traction T/A's I bought. They have the snowflake on the sidewall - they meet the severe snow service requirements.

Duratracs would be very good







BFG A/T are good









on the cheaper end of things but still very good Sport King's

Ok I know for sure I want the dc-2s in 15x8. I'm going to get the duratracs because they seem better for snow and are a little bit cheaper than the commercials, but I don't know if I want the 235/75r15 for $136 or the 31/10.5r15 for $154.
