I am pulling a 6000lb TT with my 2010 Titan crew cab. It still has oem goodyear tires on it. Seems that they are a little soft for towing. Any recommendations on good tires for towing?

I can tell you that on my 08 PRO-4X, I pulled our 8500 LB TT over 2 years on the stock Rugged Trails so...they will do the job without having to worry much. I just replaced them this winter with BFG All Terrain KOs which are a true 10 ply E rated truck tire, not a "P" rated passenger tire like the OEMs. I would just be sure to get an E rated tire regardless of which one you choose. They handle over 1000 LBS more capacity. I'm very happy with the KOs...excellent winter traction but haven't towed with them yet. Should be a great improvement.

Like Hudson said they should be fine with your application but when you need tires again I would too get a E rated tire. I hate these P rated tires I have ATM. I had a brand new set of BFG KO's on my frontier I traded in and I was highly impressed with them.

I have a set of D rated Toyo LT tires. I went with them because the tread depth was more than other brands I was looking at. They work great and look great too. I didn't need the weight capacity of the E rated tires and I didn't want to pay the extra money for it either.

Towed for 4 years now with Michelin LTX A/T2 (LRE). Been great tires and helped to tame the back end wiggle with our Flagstaff 829BHS. I will replace these ones with the same when they wear out. Having towed with both the "P" and Load Range E light Truck tires. I wouldn't ever consider using the P's again.

For those of you using E rated tires, did you change rims? I have a 2006 Off Road Armada, and I replaced the stock tires with load range D tires. When I had them inflated at 60 on my last trip, my TPMS light came on. When I got it reset at the dealer, I was told the system will come on because that pressure will set it off due to being on the high side. Can the Armada/Titan stock rims handle load range E tires? I am not too concerned about it as I found that running them around 50 psi gave me plenty of stiffness vs. the P rated tires, but the light was a bit annoying.

I got a set of General Grabber HTses, E rated, for my T. Gets rid of the squirmy feeling while towing when towing my 7000 lb TT. I run 35-40 PSI when empty and 50 PSI when towing. That's enough pressure to carry 8K lbs, which is a bit over my T's GVWR :). No need to run 60+ PSI.

The only downside is my mileage went down about 1 MPG.

They were on the stock rims for 4 years, I just had them put onto MB Gunner 6's. These ones are stamped 2500lbs max each. I would assume the stock ones would be at least 2000+. I usually run around 50-55 for towing. If you run them too high all you'll do is rattle your teeth and wear the middle of the tread bald before the edges. Yeah. I'm stuck with the light too.
