Help with tire selection

Need to buy new tires for my tow vehicle a 2014 ram 2500. I am towing a 25 foot 2016 flying cloud. My current tires are Pathfinders LT265/70R17 121/118S
Load range is E

Should I buy the same size and load range or go with something different. What do people suggest ?

I've had great service from Firestone TransForce AT.
First set went 137000 miles, and aged out but not to wear bars. Current set over 90000 miles at 2 years.
I'm not a Firestone guy but Michelin never wore like these!
Available in 10 play of course.

Transforce were the factory tires on our 18 Ram 3500. Only got 34K our of the first set. Running Goodyear Duratracks now. Had great results running these Goodyears on an 09 Yukon XL 2500.

I second the Transforce At's. I put on General Grabbers this time because the price was really right! Have had great luck with the Transforce in the past 2 sets on my previous truck, getting about 130 thousand km's each set. Stay with the LT tires for pulling a trailer. JMHO
