All position tires vs drive and steering?

One of my next purchases for my renovation of my 1990 34' Gulfstream is all new tires, so, I'm trying to decide between all position and drive and steering tires. Seems all position wouldn't get the wet road traction of drive tires, a straight line tread vs a cross hatch lug style tread. Mine currently has R8 19.5 12 ply rating, that is what the mfg sticker calls for. Anyone have thoughts/ advice.

There are three parts to this:

1: On clear dry pavement: I do not think you will notice a difference

2: ON wet pavement.. You might

3: ON wet dirt or snow you will.

All eight tires on my Phaeton are steer tires, unidirectional. I don't know enough about the different types of tires but that simply makes sense to me. If the snow is deep enough that I have to worry about traction I'm parking it.
Also should I have a flat on the front and an exact match tire is not available I'll move a tag to the front and use whatever is available on the tag to get me by for awhile. Actually I won't move it I'll have road side assistance do it.
