I would look to the Michelin or Goodyear brands as the best mixture of sporty and offroad performance. My parents also put a nice set of Cooper light truck tires on their stock 1992 Jeep Cherokee 15" rims that turned out very nice -- aggressive tread, don't need to be rotated, and did not need to lift the vehicle to do it.

I have 285/75 16 Kumho RoadVenter AT's on mine. Worked great for offroad, highway, deep standing water, and ice/snow. They're 32.8" tall and about the biggest you can go. They have about 1/4" clearance between the tire and UCA so they rub slightly when turning lock to lock. I have the stock wheels at the moment. Spacers or wheels with different back space would eliminate the UCA rub, but case the outside edge of the tire to rub the body mount behind the wheels. Many people have cut back the body mount, and welded a flat plate of steel over the hole to get the needed clearance. Personally, I just deal with a 1/2" long rub mark on the UCA. I have a 3" suspension lift so that helps a little, but either way you won't fit larger tires without some work

I would recommend a set of Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor's. If you don't want to lift it I would go with a 265/75R16. These should fit on a stock tacoma. They will be a little bit taller than the stock size but should still fit. Another cool thing about the silent armor's, tough aggressive tread design for off-road conditions, but still a good smooth ride on the road as well. They are going to be my next set of tires. I work in a tire shop fyi, so if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
