We do a lot of boon docking! I am thinking is it rougher and noisier but good for soft grass or such off road situations?

I typically do not hear the term "mud & snow" often, but rather MT (for Mud Terrain) or AT (for All Terrain). You absolutely do NOT want Mud Terrain, as they are only better in the mud, get super noisy after 20K miles, and are pretty much worse at everything else, including snow. The All Terrains should be fine and still give you a relatively quiet ride. I would go onto the Discount Tire web site and read the reviews for your desired tire size & rating:

I did just get a great set of Mickey Thompson ATs for my truck, and I love them.

Why?
They would be noisy and cause a rough ride. Commercial truckers don't use them, why should motorhomes use them?
No trying to be a smart @ss, but personally I don't see the need. Going to be in snow? Purchase Snow Socks. Easy on & off.

If you're truly in the mud in your Class A, you're probably having other issues as well. Do you travel in upper elevations in snow season where you might encounter slush?? Many people's motorhomes will never be on the road when temps are in the 40's, let alone colder.
On relatively flat ground, even on wet grass, ribs will do fine. It's hard to imagine being off pavement on sharp inclines, unless you have a plan....

OP,
Sounds like you might do similar remote boodocking and all season adventure as I do except I do mine in a Super C. What I use on my 22.5 rims is all position steers. Then I have automatic chains that deploy when needed with the flip of a switch from the drivers seat.
The result is a very smooth and quite ride when needed and very good (but not excellent) off road traction.
Congratulations on your adventures!

rear tires

2012 Itasca 26 P, just replaced all tires due to Texas rear blow out: Installed (2) steers for front, (4) Michelin XDS2 19.5 on rear. 4/2019 departed Carlsbad Caverns 93 degrees w/ stiff winds, turned west for White Sands, experienced white out snow crossing Cloudcroft high elevation. Definitely didn't plan on driving in snow, no place to pull off, touch brakes feel it slid! Luckily I learned to utilize F53 tow mode during Alaska journey. 30 miles of sheer fear!! Haven't performed long range test yet, but for boondocking and adverse weather I definitely feel more secure with MILDLY aggressive rear traction. Definitely wouldn't go as far as true mud/snow tread patterns.
