Default Tire help

I need some tires.
These Cooper winter's get clogged up too easily, but I'm not sure what I want to run.

I know I can do a 33x11.5-16, but will a 33x12.5-16 fit on my truck with a torsion level? Not worried about trimming.
But anyway, these are what I've narrowed it down to.
Kuhmo Road Venture MT KL71
D/C Crushers
D/C FCII
Cooper Disco STT

I need something that's good in the mud, will get decent (50K + KM), and sounds mean on the highway.
Thoughts?

they're made by bfg, so they're fairly common and made in a few sizes. the tread is pretty aggressive on them. my buddy's personal truck has them, he's only running them because he paid just over 400 for all 4 new/mounted. i can't tell you how loud they are, his truck is a diesel and every time i'm in it the 2 way keeps blasting.

Alright, I'll keep the KM2's in my mind, but moving past the whole "they're popular right now" (i don't care what's popular or not, if I could I'd run TSL's) why are they a god tire? How are they in the mud? How are they on the trail? How many KM can I expect to see out of them?
My truck is a mudrunner, and a DD. I drive about 6000KM/month for work, so I need them to last.
