Default need help with tire selection

So heres the deal. Have a 2007 hemi quad cab. 2" bilstein level struts and 1" blocks. 20" factory wheels. Buying 275/65/20 tires. Will be towing a camper starting next spring. Live in Colorado mts will be doing snow driving. Do mostly highway %5 or less off road/fire roads with truck. Choices are as follows

1. BF A/T. $302 A TIRE. Old school but i KNOW this tire. Tread life little less, noise little more.

2. Nitto terra grappler. $284 a tire. Know this tire. Good all purpose long tread wear.

3. Cooper A/T3 discoverer. $301 a tire. I dont know anything about this tire but i like the look. (Looks similar to the toyo open country A/T to me.

4. Toyo open country A/T II. $242. Again. Dont know anything about these either but look good.

These are my options and prices. Will have to deal with alot of snow and pavement. They all seem like solid tires. Dont know which would be best for Colorado winters. Any and all input would be appreciated. The Nitto seems to be a crowd favorite around here from checking out trucks in parkinglots. And ive seen their longevity first hand. I have a soft spot for the old BF all terrains. I know they work and look good. The tread on the cooper and toyo both look quiet and good for snow. But no personal experience with either.

I've got a set of 275/55/20 Nitto TerraGrapplers and I love them. Not the same size as you're looking for but they are close. They look great on my truck and still have a tone of tread left and I've got about 17K miles on them
