Duratrac 305/55R20

Sorry for the double post, but I thought I might be better posting this here as well as the Tire forum.
I have seen some reviews for the Duratrac that say they are terrible for towing. Yet the reviews don't always reveal what size and width rims were used, which would have an effect on the rigidity of the sidewalls. The Duratracs are pinned for studs, and look like they might work for me. I would run 305/55-20s on 9" rims. I would be occasionally towing a 10,000lb+ dump trailer.
Has anyone had heavy towing experience with this size Duratrac tire on 20x9 rims?

325/60/20 on mine, yes I've towed those weights and in snowy weather. They are definitely Not as hard in the sidewall as my Toyo Mts but they ride so much better and quieter. I'm not breaking records in the corners when towing those weights so it doesn't bother me one bit. I don't think it's as pronounced with the shorter sidewall.

I just bought a set of 315/75/16's today. Well, ordered them. I should have them in a week. I imagine that I will have more sidewall flex in mine with the 16's but I dont know if you are going to find anything better in an aggressive AT. I was looking at the grabber at2's but they are D rated and I imagine worse off. I doubt I will be towing anything, let alone anything that heavy in the next while but I can let you know how the tires work out for me.

They are very nice. Definitely want to rotate on schedule.
