Brand new 2008.5 Titan SE CC Standard Bed w/Tow Package. P rated 18" tires (passenger tires correct???). On my last tow vehicle (Dodge van) I replaced the passenger tires with light truck tires (LT). Will tow a 25' Airstream (7300lbs GVWR most likely I'm at 6000lbs). Have Prodigy brake control and Reese WD/sway control. If you all suggest new tires would a dealer take trade on tires w/ 300 miles???

I can tell you what most people here have done.

The factory "P" rated tires have enough capacity for the Titan and towing, BUT a set of LT tires have stiffer sidewalls which are better for towing. Most people here wear out the factory units, and replace them with LT tires.
Make sure your factory tires are air up before towing.
Tow with the factory skins, you might find they'll be fine until they're burned up...

Thanks AGAIN Lou. Thats exactly what I did with previous TV. Guess I'll try it again and see how the first trip goes. Air em up and anti-sway should help.

When the winds are a blowing and the trucks are passing, those LT's will pay for themselves with lower shorts cleaning bills...

The Factory tires are P rated, which, while they give good ride unloaded, when towing have soft sidewalls. This can cause sway. Our camper is closer to 9000lbs fully loaded, and had to change to the LT tires to fix the sway.

Dude, you resurrected a 13yr old thread. The original poster and first commenter haven't been on the forum since 2011 and 2014 respectively. Save comments for valid/current threads.
