Severe snow service all terrain tires?

I'm looking to get some new tires before winter. I'm looking for all terrains with the severe service or mountain snowflake emblem. So far all I have found are:

1) Goodyear Duratrac
2) BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO
3) Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor
4) General Grabber AT2

Anything else I should consider in size 235/85-16 or 265/75-16?

All I can speak of are the Grabber AT2's...

I have had them a year now and they are wearing like iron...PLUS they had miles on them from another TW owner...

I live in NH and they made ALL of last winters SNOW look easy....With my job I can be out during or just after a storm for sno-clean-up /removal and these were flawless..plus "played a lil in the snow"..cleaned out just fine

I do have the 265/75/16's and mine are LT's...some say they are "overkill" ratings wise for a Tacoma BUT I never worry about loading the Taco down with 3/8" stone,loam or worn cutting edges ( $$$$ ) so they work fine for me...

add Les Schwab wintercats and XTX. I had XTX 9 years ago or so, real good on the snowy roads, slightly looses on dry roads.

Duratracs are awesome in deep snow for a AT
