Tow Vehicle Tires

I need to put new tires on our truck. W tow with a 2019 Ram 1500. I think I want something with stiff sidewalls for sway, but don't really want to give up our current good ride. We have Nexen Roadian HTX RH5's. Want an aggressive tread highway tire, or mild AT tire .... not so much as to cause road noise.
Recommendations ??

I've been disappointed the few times I strayed from Michelin.

You will get recommendations for every brand there is
We used to run Michelin on all our personal and farm trucks and started having too many problems so we switched to Cooper several years ago.
Cooper AT3. Not noisy, good ride, good traction, longevity, and they look good. Haven't had any issues with them at all so I highly recommend taking a look at them.

My 2 cents....


I like my Firestone Destination L3
Quiet and good traction in the wet

The only recommendation that I will make based on experience: Use an "E" rated tire. The manufacturer will recommend tire pressures for towing and daily driving.

I'm still running the original Goodyear tires on my 2019 Silverado. I've had zero sway problems towing my trailer. In fact, I don't even use the sway bar that came with my trailer, it's that rock solid. Sway issues are a function of the trailer. Getting LT tires to replace your P Metric tires will not fix the problem.

Thank you for the impromptu review! I need new tires for my Yukon and I was leaning very hard towards the AT3's!

Replacing P tires with LT might not fix the sway entirely but it will damn sure improve the handling while towing anyrhing substantial.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^THIS, also look at Hankook LT tires i;ve had good luck with them for over 30 years, trucks and campers (before GY Endurance was available)
