I don't think anyone has told you to "get rid" of them yet.

Just letting you know about potential problems.

sure do like them f150 eco's....I just ALLLLMOST had one in my driveway before the 250..

and to be honest im sure it woulda pulled my trailer more than well enough...diesel like torque for a gasser for sure!

and no need to get rid of the stock tires....just get you some lt rated ones to tow with and use the stockers for everyday driving...LOL.....I swap my stock ones back on to tow....what a pain..them 20s are heavy!

Congrats on the new truck, a real nice looking truck with plenty of pull power. Don't know why Ford puts out a max payload HD truck with "P" rated tires??? Very nice truck.

That doesn't make any sense to me either, especially when you get all the max towing garb, it's obvious it's going to be used to tow big stuff.

I absolutely love the sound of the turbo engine kicking in...just PUUURRRRRRS!!!

Most tire shops will trade you out of your p-rated tires into some load range E tires for little or no money exchanged!

when i bought my nittos, the shop offered me 1700$ for my old wheel/tire/sensors....

they were about 9 months old...lol....no thanks.....

but the OP tires are brand new.....may not be much of an investement to trade em in on some lt tires only...worth looking into for sure

Doesn't ford have a max payload and max tow option. Your payload seems low to me so my guess is you don't have the HD payload option. With 5k lbs that is no big deal but jump up a few more thousand when you upgrade and you will wish you had it. Nice trick though.
