To choose a IOS for you is like a guess, because you dont tell want interfaces, routing or traffic you will run. If you mean load sharing/balancing, you proberbly mean the SLB (Server Load Balancing) feature which demands at least IP PLUS feature set.
You proberbly should run the software/hardware compablitiy matrix before choosing IOS. As Mr joytaylor wrote, the latest should be the most stable, but if you run into trouble (supported IF/NM/WIC), maybe you should check the 12.2.(8)T5.
As a general rule of thumb, if you're looking for maximum stability in an IOS release, you want the latest maintenance release of the oldest mainstream GD release which supports the features and hardware you plan to use. There are no "stable" 12.2 releases yet and there will never be any "stable" T-train releases. In production applications, I prefer an IOS which has been GD for at least a year, so I am just starting to feel comfortable with 12.1 :-]
