I need new tires

Anyone got a idea on what kind and cost would be good for a Dodge Dakota towing a Jaco J Feather lite 29N

What size tires do you plan to replace? Will you be replacing with the same size or doing an upgrade? More info needed before good advice can be given- Don

IMO an "LT" rated TV tire (in lieu of a "P" rated) is preferred under most towing conditions. It should be noted that up-grading the OEM tire size, and/or rating doesn't increase a TV's towing capacity.., but it can enhance TV handling characteristics in many cases.

I like Cooper tires and they are my current choice. I have Kelly tires on my truck I have had p-metric tires on my truck since I bought it in 99 the only problem I have had was what is called a stone bruise, and I feel that happened when the tire came off at 60mph with our 230SL back in 98, but that's a whole 'nother story.

As stated before, use LT tires in load range D or E. If your Dakota has a small engine you could probably go down one size for a better over all gear ratio for towing. Like going from 235 to 225.

I have a Chevy 2500 Duramax that I towed a 17,000 pound fifth-wheel all over creation and back. I've burned through some tires. Best I have found for towing in my situation are the Micheline LT2 in load range E. I get them at Costco and they usually have some sort of discount when buying four tires together.

What year Dakota? And do you happen to know the current tire size on your truck?
