In addition to the weigh scale information, measure how much squat you have in the rear and how much lift on the front axle. One inch squat and zero to 1/2 inch lift on the front is a good target.

I donít think that low profile high performance tires are a good choice for towing. The tire in the picture is from 2016, so already 4 years old. Not terribly old, but apparently too old for towing.
