Well, if you are going to start talking about bias ply tires then clearly the best mud tires are boggers. But I have yet to see a bias ply tire that is road friendly and lasts very long. Even TSL Radials IMO are a bit too aggressive for the road.

One of my trucks 98 silverado 2500 had interco super swamper radials 265/80-16 (tall skinny tires) and they were siped. they were great in the mud and fields and handled the road great too even on icy and wet conditions. the drawback is that they are VERY noisy and only good for about 30,000 miles and then they are shot. I could not comment on fuel economy as this was a 454 and is in the 13mpg range all the time.
98 with swampers
the goodyears are not that great on icy roads due to the harder tread compound but work good in the dirt and mud and last a long time. My dads MT's have over 50,000 on them and are still good for this year.
My 01 HD with cooper ST's
I did a lot of research and found that the Dick Cepek MT's (now owned by Micky thompson) get the best OVERALL ratings for off road and on road performance in both mud and icy conditions and wear very well. I planned on putting these on my truck but at $200 each I decided on Toyo's which also have a great rating. they also have a 500 mile try it warranty. if you do not like them than they will refund your full purchase price and you can go with something different.
The Toyo's so far have impressed me, Better gas milage but a rougher ride (10 ply load range E). with my coopers and the 8.1l engine just taking off from a corner on gravel they would slip quite a bit. these toyos seem to grip a LOT better with no slippage. only time will tell if I made a good choice.
