Best AT tires for towing

I tried to post this is the tire thread but I'm not allowed for some reason. I'm looking for tires to replace the junk Firestone Transforce that came on my 2018 Tradesman 2500. this truck is my daily driver and I pull a 5th wheel camper that I use for work. The camper weighs approx 17k. Driving is 95% asphalt and 5% off road. Road conditions are from dry to snow covered and I've had to move the camper over wet ground. I've been looking at the Nitto Ridge grapplers and the Cooper AT3's. Looking for reasonably quiet, good wearability, decent off road performance for an AT and good road manners.

What are y'all digging.

Have you seen Toyo's M55? Supposed to be a beast of a tire.

I am a General Contractor and pull a 10k trailer around everyday. Nothing I tried has outperformed Falken AT3W, they are excellent tires.

That's a decent looking tire. What kind of mileage have you gotten out of them.

35,000 with 95% towing. Could have easily gone to 50,000 without towing.

You make it sound like you're willing to pick tires based on photos of them.
And yes, to some extent you can, if armed with an intimate knowledge of tread designs.
But if you have that, why would you post the question?

I'm not basing my choice on looks. I went to the Falken website and read the info and googled reviews. Thanks though.

I’ve had good results with Nitto Terra Grappler G2, EXO Grappler, and Ridge Grappler.
Also been very happy with Cooper ST Maxx. Mickey Thompson ATZ 2 also very good
Noise level from quietest first
Terra G2
ATZ and ST Maxx same
Ridge Grappler
EXO Grappler
All were around 35” diameter
Range from 285 to 325. Wider tires do hum more on the hwy

I switched to the Nitto Terra Grappler G2 and so far I love them. Quiet, good wet and dry traction on road. Decent traction in the sand/dirt around here. Very little time in mud with them, but the few spots I did have them they cleaned out well. They also have a great load rating as well, so for towing they should do you good.

Have been happy with the Cooper AT3. Excellent in the rain but havenít been in the snow to rate.
