I am not pulling near as much weight as you- 4100# dry. I realize that number goes up with the camper and truck loaded, but so far I have had no issues with P rated tires and am debating if it is worth the cost difference to go to the D's.
If you don't mind me asking, what tire did you get? (brand/model)
I got Michelin LTX M/S2 tires LR E max 80psi. LT265/70/17 for the Suburban. 115,000 km warranty (70,000 miles). Can't beat the Costco price and $15 installation. Lifetime rotation, balancing, and road hazard including nitrogen fill. They are filled to 45psi to match the load rating required. So that sets off my TPI monitor. Need to get it reset.
PS They also have an LTX A/T2 tire that is more aggressive for gravel and off road and is well rated.
