If you need a more stout (higher LR) tire for towing, with the trailer hooked up you would feel the back of the truck "wiggling" so to speak side to side. Almost as if a person on each side of the vehicle back by the rear while "working together" is pushing the tv side to side. Do you feel anything like this?
When we had our '10 Chevy Silverado CCSB 4x4, towing at that time our ~7200lb tt (about 920lb tw), we had that issue with the factory p rated tires. I bought a set of Cooper A/T3's LR C, and the new tires completely solved the issue.
When towing, what air pressure do you run the tv tires at, front and rear? If not at the max pressure stated on the sidewall (probably 50psi), try running the tires at 50psi. The front may not need to be aired to max pressure, but probably at least 40psi.
