New TV tires?

Excited about the new to me TV and getting ready to start the FT/PT travelling around US and CAN.

As I bought used, and one of the tires was damaged. The set was replaced with used. Originally I was to get one new one, I would buy a second, have them on the back for the summer- not too much towing yet. Then in the fall buy two more new ones switch back to front and off I go.

Instead, dealer suggested that since tires are really important to me re towing, he could either have all new or upgrade tires at Wholesale.

I like this option as I would be replacing these used ones this fall anyway.

What the GMC Sierra comes with is the Goodyear Wrangler SRA.

I tow 22’ all in would run around 5600# and will be adding mid roof ARE topper.

The factory specs for my truck build out is rated for 11200# ha ha so absolutely no worries in the weight department.

Should I go with E rated vs D stick with GoodYear?

Without any tire wars please.

Looking for tire that has solid reviews. Medium price range- best bang for buck that would give me a good run time.

All suggestions most welcome....but be nice I understand we all have our own preferences and experiences good and bad.

Michelins have always worked well for me. D is all you need for that truck.

I’ve had some bad experiences with used tires. Someone else could’ve run them low on air long enough to wreck them and you’ll never know til it’s too late.

We like Michelin as well.

Like a tattoo, a good tire is not cheap and a cheap tire is not good.

My 2017 Sierra came with Goodyear Eagle LS/2 tires, and I've been very happy with them so far. Only 17k miles at this point, but they aren't really showing any wear. I think others that have more miles then me have also posted here that they are holding up well. We are pulling a slightly larger/heavier trailer than yours.

I have been using on my Ram with 150K miles a few diff tires. Generals were crap and got 23K miles out of them and zero response from General. BFG that came on the truck were good for about 40K miles. so, 2 sets of tires was good for 63K We have had Yokohama for the last 2 sets. The first was more of an all terrain tire very similar to the BFG that were OE. They were a bit noisy and knocked the mileage down a bit. I replaced them at 70K miles before they were down to the wear bars, but it was time. We replaced them with a highway style of Yokohama and they are running strong with what looks like zero wear after 17K miles. They are quiet, handle well (for an 8000 lb truck) and boosted my unloaded highway mileage up to 22-23 MPG. I highly recommend them.

I buy from Discount Tire Direct and have them mounted and balanced at a local shop for 2 pizzas and a 6 pack :-)

I’m thinking that I might wait till my mid summer trip to the states your tire prices are much lower. I don’t get charged duty as it would be a service repair per say and that is exempt when I cross back over. But they would not know anyway

I replaced the stock P tires for E rated Toyo Open Country AT2 tires on my Tahoe and could not be happier. I've had great luck with Toyos over the years, high performance cars and SUVs, the are not loud, ride well, and last long. Huge difference in feel when towing going to the E/10 ply over the P tires that were on it.
