    Anyone have any experience with cooper discoverer AT3 XLT 275/55/20? It is about the only tire I came up with that is load range E for what I'll be towing.

    I think we got two threads going here..lol

    How are you estimating your load range? Tongue weight is not that much typically and rarely does towing have much to do with load range or tires. Now hauling....truck stuffed full of 1000s of lbs....Certainly needs higher load range tires, although you would be amazed hoe many people overload vehicles and tires with no noticeable issues....

    I know many people say err to the side of higher capacity bu how much extra weight are you really putting on your tires....and only mostly on the rear ones?? You could scale it. But an average truck is WAY below the limit of the load capacity of a tire and D and E are even higher.

    I would have to look at the numbers.

    I'm going to put up a thread in the towing forum. That way it will be more specific! I did kinda hijack this thread and I shouldn't have!

    I know that feeling! I'm waiting for an 8.8 rear housing to be done - its at the shop to be cleaned / prepped / powder coated. Once it's back I can start assembly! The anticipation is killer! This is for my 94 mustang GT.
