Mud tires for Nicaraguan back roads

I’ve followed the discussion on snow tires. Do the conclusions (softer rubber wearing shorter periods of time on highways) hold true for mud tires? Secondly, I can not find a mud tire for my 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara. Is a lift kit and coil spacers my only solution to “fit” a larger mud tire?
