Have you considered the DC fun county 2's? I have heard great feedback up here in the snow. They are on my short list for a set of winter/all season/light wheeling tire. Then a dedicated set of hard wheeling tires on 2nd set of wheels for me.

I have not, will do some research on them next. What have been peoples experiences on the Trxus MT's running big and being hard to balance?

I don't know that they necessarily run big, I think the run close to true. Mine were still under 35" on the truck but they were as close as you could get to 35's .

Interco isn't known for their roundness on tires, but the Trxus are pretty good. At least the 4 I had were mostly round took some weight to balance and one was "ok" but they were fine on the road.

They run big (which is a plus for me), take a lot of weight to balance (but mine have always stayed balanced) and are fairly soft so tread life is a performance tradeoff (again, a plus for me as my rig is not a DD but is a family rig I use in virtually all conditions from the mall to Monument Hill blizzard conditions to crawling to snow runs, and I want high performance across all of my usage).

ended up buying goodyear wrangler MT/R's.. Big O had them. Looking for other tires online just got to be too much of a pain. We'll see how these do, maybe get a different set next time who knows.

You'll like them. I'm running them on my 60 now. Just get them sipped for improved snow performance.
