I have only found the 1 tire in my size in an all terrain LT tire and it is a D rated tire.$1150
I can get the Cooper AT3 in P for $780.
We are weekend warrior campers who doesn't venture far from home. 6 trips this year ad it will be less than 700 miles total with a 4500# camper. As I said, hard to justify the price difference while towing that little.
Sounds like you have looked at the options. My tires are standard. People need to watch the special edition TVs tires for example the 20 inch tires and other options reduce tow capacity (load range) if you look at the manufacturer tow specs and will allow the rim to dent if you hit a bad pot hole. (We have potholes in Canada that are given an area code ...)
I don't tow a lot but I use the SUV mostly for towing, I can wait months to fill it in the winter. So after the P tires were done I went to LT tires. It is peace of mind and as in my experience it is much more fun to tow now. If you search here you will see many regulars who have commented on tire choices and picked LT.
