Tire Recomendation for Tow Vehicle

I have a 2005 F350 Diesel FX4 Super cab SRW long bed diesel and tow a Jayco Pinnacle 36REQS. The Pinnacle has a hitch weight of 2670. I don't go off-road (unless I have to) but I need to buy a new set of tires. What do I look for when shopping? What performance indicators do you look for other than Load Rating? Any brand recommendations?

Look up Michelin LTX M/S2 if you don't do off road and want a tire that lasts and lasts. Cost is a little more than some other tires, but will outlast them.

I just took some off my 2006 Dodge as they were as old as the truck and developing dry rot cracks! I bought the truck used and do not know if they were the original tires. They had about 1/2 tread left at 73500 miles on the truck when I bought it. I tried to wear them out with hard acceleration and even burnouts. I had 90,000 miles on the truck when I changed to the tires I had already purchased - another brand LT tire for my previous tow vehicle, which is the same size as the Dodge, so I kept them when I traded my last truck for the Dodge. I prefer the ride quality of the Michelin tires and the wear (or lack of) as I did NOT rotate them for 16,500 miles.

I WILL be going back to the Michelins as I got better mileage with them, better ride, great on road traction wet and dry, and do not 4 wheel but do use 4 wheel drive if needed.

When it comes to tires, you generally get what you pay for. If you don't mind paying a bit more, stick to Michelin or Toyo. I sell alot of tires and my personal preference (to each their own) are the Michelin A/T2. They have enough grip when i'm in a slippery situation with or without my camper, yet they're still quiet and smooth enough to make for a nice ride. I hope this can help
