DRW would be needed to get a more stable setup, just going to a 1 ton is no guarantee for a more stable setup.


You can get really close to the stability of a DRW by going to 19.5" tires. It's a trade-off though.


Quick question for a newbie. The tow rating inside the door show 18" wheels. This truck came with 275/65-20's. Does anyone know how that will affect towing ability? more or less weight restrictive?
thank you,
Ken

18" wheels have a higher weight capacity than the 20", at least with recent GM trucks.

The 20" tire carries more load capacity than 17" or 18".

Fords F250/F350 OEM wheel specs shows 3590 lb for 18" and 20"
