Towing with 295/65r20 Nitto Trail MTR

Anyone pulling a fiver with this tire? Once purchased, looking to upgrade the stocker with a set of those; I pull a toy hauler (34', about 12k as I have it loaded). Or would it be better to keep the stocker as-is and invest in aftermarket wheels if I want to run a set of 35's? Stockers are perfect for towing, just want more clearance for rough camping and trails.

Thanks.

Exact same set up 295/65/20 Nitto trail grapplers E's on a 2010 SRW F350!!! 36ft 5th wheel 13-14K also on a 4.5 inch icon Stage 2 lift kit.. Pulls a little nose high on the trailer but no issues. tires run great and very little sway pretty impressed with them so far wear has been really good also. The tires alone will give you about a 1/2 inch up over 34.1 stock height

And just wanted to say thank you for your Service Sir!!!

Do you have a current pic of your setup?
Seeing as how they can handle over 4k, it sounded like they were pretty stiff; just didn't know how that M/T tread tracked. I plan on installing a Carli Backcountry with a set of their towing bags, so no rear sag issue for me.

The stockers may be over 34" but look so small to me when you do so much as a level. Seeing pics of the 295's on Dodge's makes those trucks look just right, even with 3" lifts.

And you don't have to call me sir- I work for a living! I've been retired for 2 summers now, but I do support a critical OEF mission over here, so that thanks goes out to all in uniform over here. They look so young, most just out of school. Wait; did I actually make a fatherly remark?

Man, getting old SUCKS!!!

What kind of tire pressure are you guys running with the 295 trail grapplers? I recently put a set on my 08 with 60lbs but they feel like they sway a decent amount. This is just normal driving i havnt hauled anything yet. Thanks
