I have a 2011 ram 1500 big horn. It's time for new tires. It has the 20" wheel. I'm looking for something that will be better for towing but also have a little tread. Any suggestions?

Are you wanting passenger tires or upgrade to a truck tire? What tires do you have now?

I too have a 2011 ram....mine is the outdoorsman package that came with LT's from the factory. The OEM tires were goodyears and lasted for 75k and were 8 ply....went with the BFG A/T that were 10 Ply....seemed to be a fairly substantial difference in handling while under tow. Much better with the heavier tire.

if you do go to LT....make sure that your wheels are good for the increased PSI the LT tires require.
