Good tires for towing/08 Tundra

It is about time to replace the tires on my Tundra and I am wondering what recommendations people have re: all terrain tires. I live in Colorado so I need a tire that does well in snow and also prefer one that doesn't have too much noise.

Current tires are Goodyear Trail All Terrains.

Choices seem to be:
Goodyear Trail All Terrains
Yokohama T/A-S
Nitto Dura Grapplers (seem to be available in higher load rating)

Any input on these tire choices? I tow a 23FB and want to make sure I get a tire up to the task.

Thanks.

Sandy

I recently put a set of Yokohama Geolander AT's on my 01 Tundra and love them. I did it on the recommedation of a good friend in Canada who will only run Yokohamas. They are far better than the Toyo's I had been running. I had installed a set on my Tahoe, the wife's vehicle, last year and have been very happy with the ride and the wear on that vehicle, it is 2 wheel drive. Also, on my Tundra which is a 4x4, I get great traction in the mud.

Aren't you guys looking at the MICHELIN A/T2? Or is it Load Range E only?

I have been looking at all load ratings
I just want to pick tires that will be safe for my trailer. I was leaning toward the geolanders since they carry more load than the goodrich oem tires.
