Toy Hauler tow rig

Thanks to the help from many in this site I finally pulled the trigger and traded my HD 2500 Duramax/ Allison Crew Cab for a GMC C4500 'Top Kick' with a Chariot conversion
I now will be/feel much safer at highway speeds pulling this 15K lb toy hauler
It has the Duramax/Allison with Link Ultra Ride Chassis Air Suspension (not sure what all this does) and a 7 door storage all aluminum tow platform. I will also be able to use this in my business as well. So thank you all for your help
BTW. It needs tires. What are some great 10 plys that I can place on this rig I loved my Michelin LTS/MS on the HD2500. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated
Warm regards
Mark

I've worked for Goodyear Engineered Products for 22 years and we used to get coupons for Goodyear and Kelly tires before we were bought out by another company. Sense then I've been buying Yokohama tires for my trucks and they have been very good as far as running true and balancing out nice. I believe your truck might have 19.5 inch wheels though so your choices my be a little more limited.

This is my 5th Duramax and I specifically wanted a DPF deleted version. It makes the massage so much more effective. It's hard to work hard when you can't breath right.

I'm a Michelin fan, so as I mentioned in your other thread, I'd go with Michelin XRV in the stock size.
