all terrain tires wider stance/ good on highway

good evening I need some input from people with taco experience, I have 2013 black double cab standard with a 3 inch lift and I need to get my winter tires off asap (hakkapeliitta r2's which i highly recommend they were great this winter (Canadian winter), anyway I don't want to put the stocks back on as i need something with a litter more bulk and bite, Specifically i am looking for a good tire which will do well in mud/dirt rocks etc occasional off roading, but will also do well on highways/ normal street driving with low noise, I also want to widen my stance a bit. I drive highway and dirt roads everyday for work.
also wondering because of my 3 inch lift my upper control arm is angled down a bit more than stock so with purchasing new rims for the wheels I get( want to keep the stock rims on my winters) how much of an offset should I be looking for to give plenty of room so there will be no rubbing on anything in the wheel well.
the stock wheels as well as my winters are p265/r17 as well as the inside door panel label.
again i would like to get a bigger all terrain tire for non winter months/ possibly bigger rim, low highway noise give a bit wider stance.
thanks for any tips/ help stories of experience in advance.
happy day after 420

Hankook dynapro atm. You also should get new UCA's with 3 inches of lift.

thanks for the input so far guys has at least helped me narrow down tires to a few, @pudge151 ya I have been thinking about getting new uca's for a while now, I was extremely busy with work when the lift got done and thought they were going to ask me if I wanted them or specific brand of package (done through toyota dealership who uses a 3rd party 4x4 truck shop), but just went with w/e they put in, I also asked right away if the fact the uca's were stock would have any negative impact but they said no....

recently though I have been noticing the vehicle steering is not as tight and almost wobbly or swims at higher speeds?while driving over bumps at high speeds and around corners. had the alignment done helped a bit but something is still off.
which uca's do you recommend, I've heard all sorts of good things about icon, dcm, total chaos, fabtech, so i don't know ho i would narrow it down. is there any specific ones i should stick to if i was to go with a steering stabilizer package as well down the line?

Hankook Dynapro ATM 265/75-16





Stock suspension, no lift, no rub. Quiet on the highway, works well in all conditions (sand, mud, snow)... this is my second set.
