Has anyone run these as a towing tire? Because it’s aggressive does it have a ton of tire squirm? I have a 2011 Ford E350 2wd van and get stuck with my worn down Cooper AT3. I wanted to go to Toyo M55 but they don’t have my size. Looking for lt265/65/17.

Looks like a good tire to me, but if you don't have a limited slip rear end, I would invest in that first.

I have a set on a GMC 3500 4X4. Pulls all the time. They are wearing well. Traction is as good as you would expect.

They'll do great as towing tires. No need to be concerned about them being squirmy. That's not an issue.

I have BF Goodrich that also have an aggressive pattern and they do fine. For the first 100 miles or so they did feel a little squirrely but settled in great after that. The one thing that I would check into is how common that tire is. Discount tire steered me towards the tires I got because most dealers generally have them in stock.

I think most AT/MT tires feel a little squirmy until they get some miles on them. I like Cooper tires and those ones in particular may be the next set I buy. My current KO2's aren't wearing as well as I'd like.

Yea. That’s the problem I have. I want to go to 265 70 17 which is much more common but I have 3.73 gears and that puts me down to a 3.6 ratio. If I went that big I would have to go 4.10.

Limited slip is going to run me $1500 so that’s not in the books right now plus I need new tires anyway.

My BIL uses them on his Ram 3500, and he likes them. Tread has worn well. He tows his RV, and dump trailer with no problem. The only negative he mentioned was that they pick up (and throw) a lot of rocks. Mud flaps might be needed.
