Tires - how aggressive do I need to go?

I checked on Tire Rack for the Original Equip installed by Toyota for both Tacoma and Tundra 4x4's. They are all All Season, no AT's. So, the first 4 years of owning my 4x4 Tacoma, without even being aware of my tires, I could do everything I wanted to do. Every tire has a limit - if I got AT, there would be things they couldn't do. And the driver generally reaches the limit of their skills long before their vehicle. Thanks for the dialog here, I think All Seasons will meet my need. The Michelin LTX M/S2 gets excellent reviews.

I put on BFG Commercial TA Traction this summer prior to a cross country trip...we run heavy...carrying a TC also.

These are a fairly aggressive tire, snow rated, but also supposed to give good mileage (time will tell).

This is a fleet tire...what you might find on UPS trucks in the winter.

So far I am very pleased with the handling while under a load.
We have not had any snow yet this winter in New England :( , so I cannot yet comment on winter handling.

These are E Rated at 3415#. Cost was less than Michelins...I paid ~ $180/ea.
