Tanker,
What brand and model WDH do you have?

You are not going to like what you are about to hear about towing with P tires on your tow vehicle.

Hi Tanker,

The reason I asked about the hitch is that you mentioned raising the ball and effecting your front end. I'm not sure that is what is needed. These two documents below might help to make sure that any adjustments you do are proper.

Ford agrees. With 2011 and newer Ford F-150s, the WDH should also be adjusted to eliminate 50% of the front end rise (halfway between the measurement from the unhitched height and the height hitched but without spring bars). That's on P. 269 of the manual.

So, you might want to check if the adjustment made by CW helps you to achieve this. You might still need to adjust the tilt of the ball to increase or decrease the distribution to the front end as needed.

Guys thanks for all the info. Dang Ford why would they put a Passanger tire on a truck that can tow 8000lbs?? I guess that most people will never really tow with a truck like mine. The tires do say they can take 2409lbs when inflated to full psi of 44. I think Ill be changeing tires sooner than I planned. AAAHHHH. I need to get out and camp.

99% of the time with 99% of the trucks sold; they will never be more than cars with a big open trunk. Ride and looks sell trucks.

Yours are not that bad actually compared to the P-rated Bridgestone Duelers that came OEM with mine.

I can say that I much prefer my current LTs vs the Ps that came with the truck.

But, I admit that I did let them wear out before I replaced them.
