Tires, what do you use

I have the old 275 by 17" and not interested in switching rims but want to stay same size for towing


What tires do you use for towing?

I tow with my baby and looking for good highway tires that still have maybe little off-road ability but not really needed.

No interest in semi tires or off-road mud tires.

Thanks!

I just went with nitto terra grappler at's. Seem like a good and very quiet tire.

Bfg at's are always a good choice for all around use.
I put cooper st maxx's on my truck for a little more chunky tread without going full mud tire. They are holding up very well so far but I've only put ~7k on them.

DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT, buy the toyo open country at2... they may have a good warrenty, but the suck everywhere that isnt a perfectly dry highway. In the rain, they break loose easily, they dont grip good offroad, and they are the worst tire I have ever used in the snow. The only pros that i have seen with these tires, is that they are fairly quiet on the road and the warrenty. But when it comes down to it, you want a tire that isnt going to loose traction everywhere you go even on paved roads.

It is my honest opinion, however, I have been a user of the bf Goodrich t/a ko for quite a while. The toyos do ride more comfortable and seem to be lasting longer as well, I am just not impressed with the traction. And I am aware that the bf's are a meatier tire but it is beside the fact. I don't personally like the toyos.

I have Hankook Dynapro ATM's on mine, and I like them. They seem to do well in any weather, and with towing.
