sorry i am from canada. i should have said 150000 km.

No need to apologize just thought that was way off.

That's still 93000 miles, I'm sorry, but I find it very hard to believe you can get that kind of milage out of any tire. Even on my car it's hard to get 90000 KM out of them.

I got 90K out of a set of BFG long trials that came OEM on my 2500 Ram. That is all highway miles. I have 45K on my current Hankook dynapro ATM and think they will make 80K.

As to OP - you have gotten some good advice here. get a good qaulity load range e tire. and many people report that their towing experience on 17's is better than 20's.

I use mud tires on my diesel trucks, with the heavy front end and driving in pastures and off road a lot. I have 295-70-18 (34.5"tall) nitto trail grapplers, load range E- 4080Lb single @80psi. I put these on in feb. only have about 5k on them. Before them I had 285-75-16 (33.2" tall) Hankook Dynapro M/T. I didn't rotate and the rears were @ about 2/32-3/32 and fronts @ little over half tread at 19,000 miles, and 3years old.

My have not seen tires "chunk" out unless they spend considerable time on gravel roads or are fairly old. But alignment and cheap tire compounds could also possibly cause it.
