New tow tires

I'm looking to upgrade our tv tires.
Currently they have stock P tires.
Looking at Michelin Defenders LTX MS 50k warranty. Wrangler Ranger LT no warranty, Copper Discover HTE 50k warranty. Supposedly they are all 10 ply.
Any recommendations? These are for a Toyota Tundra.

I really like my Michelins. I have 60k on them now and will put at least 10k on them before I replace them in the fall. They are LTX2 but not defenders. Not sure but those in particular. I also know Coopers are good as well.

Funny this thread is posted..... I just replaced my Cooper AT/3 passenger tires with Michelin Defender LTX M/S LT 265-65-R20.... what a world of difference they made in the ride already w/o the camper hooked up ! I can't wait to see how it feels towing. I went to Mavis Discount tires and they ran me $1045 + $79 for an alignment

We have Michelin on 2 of our 3 vehicles. I put Michelin LTX M/S2 on my wife's Yukon and they have been a great tire. Last week I put new tires on my 2500 tow vehicle and had thought of putting Michelins on it. I decided instead on Cooper Discoverer A/T3 load range E instead. I have not towed yet with them but they are quiet and smooth. I've had Coopers the past also and know they get pretty good reviews.

I'd go Cooper or Michelin out of the choices you listed. If your going from a p-rates to a LT load range E any of them will possibly ride a little stiffer. But for towing it's a good idea...
