All nice bikes on your list. I would strongly consider getting the bike that fits you the best when test riding - treat it like a blind test where you don't know which bike you are on.

For my second wheelset, I went with hooked carbon wheels - I did not want to feel restricted to the type or size of tire that I use especially if I wanted a smaller road tire. Works for me so far.

With a good tire, going wider and going tubeless you will feel a difference. You will probably not loose any speed, gain a more supple ride and gain some grip. Win, win, win.

I have the Terra Speeds and don't find them good in mud. I don't think there is enough knob to them for that which is why they are fairly fast everywhere else (that and the rubber compound).
