Tow vehicle replacement tires.

Anyone running a tow type tire vs a standard LT tire? Silverado 2500.

I am running these on the ol' Ford.

Doing real well towing and the tire store service has been great.

You cannot get any better than Michelins. 88,000 on my dodge, just put on second set at 80,000. Use it for towing 95% of the time.

Both Toyo and Hankook have tires designed for tow vehicles. Rated as highly as Michelins.

I'm running the Toyo AT II. They are doing very well so far. I have no complaints.

I'm a little too truthful, I guess.

Ditto on the Michelins. I put 91,000 and change on my last set and have the same tire now on my 2013 Silverado. Only wish I could get as good a tires for the TT.
