Which tires would you think would be better for the winter months?

I have these two sets of tires and the mud tires are absolutely horrible in the snow/ice. You slide quite far on ice and have created far too many close calls. I was wondering what tires would potentially be better for winter use?

The BFG AT's hands down over the other. Small tread blocks and siping is what you want for winter traction.

I wouldn't touch either one for use in winter, but if I was forced to choose, I'd use the BFG ATs (doesn't look like a whole lot of life left in the ones pictured, though).

Those BFG ATs are toast.
The Dueler MTs have no siping and large tread blocks.

I'd looks for a used set of winter tires on Craigslist or Kijiji and run just about anything else other than what you're showing there.

That's kind of what I figured. They're the two sets I got around so I figured id get other opinions on them.

99 Cherokee 4.0L | 5in Lift | 33x12.5
94 YJ 4.0L | 4in RC Lift | 33x12.5
98 TJ 2.5L | 31x10.5

Maybe drive the Duelers across the border to MI and get them siped at a tire shop?

Nope, not until you get A LOT farther north.
