I'm running 7.00 x 15 on my 3B.  They're called Hercules but look a lot like the Super Traxion.

If you want radial, then a narrow ratio would be closer (dimensionally) to a bias tire fit:

That Coker looks nice to me.  I haven't used any of these and don't know about snow performance.  Also, I like a radial tire.  This said, I like the Coker as it specifically says it doesn't hold and throw rocks, and I'm guessing mud too.  This has been my one pet peeve of my Hankook radials - they grab on to the gunk and throw it all over the underside of the fenders!  You never see this with the old NDT's.  Other than that, I do like my tire's performance in most all other ways as compared to NDT's.  A lot of the guys run the Traxion style tires and as far as I know are very happy with them.

I'm running STA Super Traxions on both my 3Bs.
I'm very happy with them on pavement, gravel and snow.
