I bought my Tundra 3 months ago to tow about 8k lbs. It's a '10 5.7L with tow pkg. the dealer put on new Bridgestone P series tires. I've liked them so far.

I want/need to change over to LTs though for the towing. I'll be going cross country on a round trip. Will also be doing some regional towing. I want to stay with the stock size.

I've had good luck with Michelin passenger car tires. They make LT tires as well.

So what do y'all recommend for LT tires?

Michelin's LTX AT2 offers the stock size in E-Range LT.Careful though,only one size up and you loose 3/32nds of treadepth.I went to LT-285-65-18 on my 2010 .This is the 2nd set of these,first set was P-Rated stock size.They got me 55,000 miles.Wife's had 2 sets on her 04 Pilot,both sets took her to 75-77,000 miles.

I have Cooper Discoverer AT3. Available in standard load, C load and E load. Quiet, nice ride and not too bad for the price. I bought stock size 275/65-18.

I went with an E Rated BFGAT. Been really happy with it. If it wasn't for the better looks of the BFGAT I would have gone with Michelin LTX A2

That's what Im going with. They make the size I want, have a great rep, and a pretty decent mileage guarantee.

I went with goodyear all terrain adventures, new tire, snow symbol so they are awesome in snow, quiet as the stockers and came with 60,000 mile tread wear warranty, $120 rebate when I got them too. Had them about 3,000 miles so far, no complaints

I put on Michelin M/S2. So far so good but if I had to do it again I would stay with the P tires and not spend the extra money. Really don't notice a difference when towing and I tow a 7200 lb Rockwood trailer.

I ended up not getting LT and got a P Cooper At3. The advantage of the Cooper to me in a 265/70 was that the weight capacity went to 2756 per tire vs 2600 for most other brands in a P tire. Yes not as high as LT but should be fine for what I tow. Plus the price was $170 per tire minus $20 per tire Cooper rebate. LTs would have cost me at least $200 more for a set.

Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

WIHocky, I'm thinking about getting the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar in 275/60/20 to replace the stock Bridgestone Duler 275/55/20. It looks like the total diameter increase is 1" so about a half inch of ride height. I'm curious to see what they look like mounted. Do you have any pictures of them on your truck? Thanks
