The 20's with their short sidewalls should tow well.
Throw a 37" on the same rim and not so much.
The little white circle should be lined up with the valve stem.

My Falken tires just got dropped off. They look good and they have a really grippy bead which I'm hoping resolves my tire spinning on the rim issue. Nitto and cooper have be bad. I'll put the on tomo and let you know

Really looking forward to seeing them on the truck installed! Please give us your impressions once they are on - I am leaning more and more towards keeping stock size so I don't deal with gearing or rubbing on these stock wheels - even with a level the 285/60/20's look plenty big, especially once you go to a more aggressive sidewall

I find it hard to believe that the tires are the issue. I tow a 9500# TT and use a Blue Ox as well. Truck is a 2018 Ram 2500 6.4 CC LB, all stock with the OEM Stones. 275/70/18
I hate my Stones. I towed a previous 5er with a 12 Ram 2500 CTD with BFG KO2 and it was rock solid. Towed the same 5er with the 2018 Ram and it was not near as solid. Still very doable but just didn't feel as tight when towing.
I'm wondering if it's the coils that make the difference in stability. I put new Bilstiens on and have bags from towing the 5er. I run them at 10 psi.
My TW is also heavy at 1350 lbs. The front of the truck is setup correctly as well. I was thinking I can't wait for the Stones to wear out so I could go back to KO2's

Although those Transforce wore out in 28K , they were great towing. See no difference in the Toyo AT2's. I used to run the Ko's on my Superduty. They towed equally as well, Just was never too crazy how they picked up the rocks. More so then other AT's I have run .

Towing with the current tires (Nitto Ridge Grapplers), I haven't seen any issues of wheel spin/slip. While I don't like the tires overall, their towing performance has nothing to do with my dislike of them.

Had Cooper Discoverer AT2's on the last truck, they did great. Road performance was better than the Nitto's... but the towing was about the same.

I am on my second set of Ridge Grapplers size 295/65r20.
Towing has been great with them, even towing over 16k (horses going from Texas to Tennessee and back).
Like others have said, load positioning is a major factor in reducing sway.
On my move to Alaska, my Camaro was a few inches further back than I should have placed it and I had a noticeable amount of sway.
When I put it back on the trailer in California (had an extended stay with family en route) the rest of the trip was great with no sway. That again was only a few inches of difference in positioning.
The first set however did bust cords on three of the four tires after over 30k miles. Discount tire helped out big time with that though. All four were replaced under the tire warranty.

Falken's look great and balanced perfect. 2.75 was the most called for out of the 4. They have really sticky beads to the point I could not rotate them to line up my dots. I had to remove the top bead and align them as close as possible. So I don't for see my tire spinning on my rims again and yes that was even using the proper tire lube. They also took near 60 psi to seat the beads. The 295/60R20 in this tire looks to be perfect if your not wanting much of a bigger tire. So far they ride great and are smooth cruising at 50 to 90. You can barely feel the new tire 15/32nds squirm as they need broke in a bit.

I love the look of the nitto's but for the issues I've had and the price I will never run them again or sell them to a customer unless they ask for them. These are also night and day quieter then the toyo at2 x. Can you hear these? Yes but only just. 60 psi front and 40 rear empty anyway seems perfect.

I know of a guy who tows a horse shoeing trailer all over the west. Darn heavy. In addition he tows a toyhauler to Glamis frequently.
He knows the manager of a local Discount. They installed some Falkens on a 3500 Ram in order to gauge long term use. We'll see shortly as he racks up the miles.
