Toad / Dinghy Tires

I'm prepping my Jeep liberty 4wd for toad duty. Reading as much as I can about what works well for others in terms of towbars, brake systems, etc.
Now wondering what tires work best in dealing with the yawing effect on front tires when turning.
I'd love some input on things like . . . Is there a need for LT tires? Should I go to 8 ply or 10 ply? (Rough ride)
Longer range tires? (70,000 mile vs 50,000)
Street tires vs AT?
I imagine frequent rotations help extend the life, but what's your experiences?
Thanks

over thinking it . if you use the jeep for normal driving not much off roading then your standard tires . Michelin , good yr etc . personal preference . if you plan on off roading then a more aggressive tire would be in order .

Thanks. Same reply i got on another forum. It's not an everyday driver so im thinking AT tires for driving around in the Rockies, etc.
A friend told me he'd worn down a few front tires his on dinghys over the years of towing so perhaps his tires were under inflated. 🤪
