New Tires and TT is now towing squirrelly

Got new tires for the TT and also new tires for the truck. Went camping last weekend and last weekend, TT didn't tow worth a darn. Rig was all over the place. Finally got it figured out when we were putting the TT in the storage lot Sunday, I noticed the that it had a nose up attitude. Got to checking and sure enough the ball height on the truck was an inch higher. Come to find out the new Michelin LTX AT2 tires are 1-1/2" higher than the old tires, same size LT265's.

I bet the aspect ratio is different on the new ones. That'll cause your speedo to be off about 4 mph low. I don't know what vehicle you have but you can probably have the speedometer reprogrammed for the new tires.
