Your GM Dealer can reprogram the TPMS in the body module. My buddy is a Service Manager at my local dealer and he used the Tech2 machine and upped my minimum to 40 psi. I have had them up to 70psi and never have had an over inflation light. The OnStar report just tells me that they are above recommended pressure, no dash light. I had him up the minimum so I will get the light sooner if I have a slow leak while driving. I always do a walk around and look at all the tires when ever we stop.

Thanks for all of your input. I called another shop today to price General and Cooper tires. I also talked with the guy about any other options. He recommended Mastercraft. The Mastercraft axt is identical to the cooper at3. They just have the different name on the side. I have had a few sets of Mastercraft tires and had good luck with them. They will be in at noon tomorrow. Either my wife will take it tomorrow or I will take it Friday morning since I took the day off for an extra long weekend.

I went with the load E. I figure it better to have the margin.

We are headed out this weekend so looking forward to the first tow with the new shoes.

Thanks for the advice on the tpms. I'll see how it goes this weekend. If I get an alarm I'll take it to be reprogrammed to higher limits.

I've got zero complaints with the Firestone Transforce HT's on my half ton truck. They've got about 50,000 miles on them now, and they still have plenty of tread left.

Hankook Dynapro AT3 60k warranty
Have run 50,000 miles and they have been an extraordinary tire for me. The AT feature has allowed me to grab anything (snow mud, dirt, grave, loose dirt etc) Pulling my gooseneck though all sorts of conditions at 14k+ weight behind me. Great tire. The discount tire ATP Cooper has seen similar results as well.

Going to a load range E tire is smart. When loaded down you will not feel much difference, as a matter of fact you will have a stronger side wall for load support. Go with the "E" tire and you'll be happy you did.

Just got new Wranglers

I have always been a proponent of Michelin tires, but just put new Wrangler ATS, LT rated tires on my truck 275/65/18. The reason I switched to Goodyear was that those were the OEM tires on my F 150, and they went 72000 miles and still had some tread left. The only reason I changed out was because we were getting ready to take a 1200 mile trip pulling the camper and I didn't want five-year-old 70,000 mile tires on the truck. They have an LT rating,, but they are C load range, so they are a good compromise for handling, ride and tow function. I pull 6500 uvw and 760 hitch, plus the usual complement of dogs, wife and groceries. I run doorjamb psi, and the tires don't squat, with a WD hitch.

I was a tire store manager a couple of decades ago, and Cooper Tires were the maker of our house brand. They were always pretty good quality; that was then, & I don't know how they are these days. But, you will always get what you pay for when it comes to tires. Trying to skimp will generally give you headaches.

I got the tires installed this morning. We made the first tow this afternoon. I started with about 45 psi. Overall it felt much better. Next tow I am going to bump it up to 47 psi. Plan to experiment a bit to find the best combo of ride and tow capability. I will say I think the truck rides better with the LT tires than it did with the p metrics, both towing and not. The wife even commented on the better ride. I am glad I went ahead with the higher rated tires.

LT vs P-metric

I read this article quite intently looking for an exact answer dues to a little side to side squishyness while towing .... However I guess it all boils down to each's own.
My current set up is of this:
2011 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi.. current sneakers are Cooper AT/3 275/60/R20 (which suck, bad mistake #1) towing a 2015 28 BHBE. Upon suggestion of someone I thought knew something about suspension I changed out my stock shocks to a good pair of gas shocks with coils ($195.00 bad mistake #2) Since I'm not towing in the next 5 months priority is I am in dire need of tires. I've noticed that If I drop my tire size down to 16" or 17" I can find a lot more tires in the LT category with better load ratings. Has anyone drop the tire size to gain better tire ratings? I'm looking at the Goodyear Wranglers ADVENTURER with kevlar....... new sneaks for the 20" rim become quite costly to the tune of $300 a tire for a decent brand and rated tire........ come spring stock shocks I think will be going back on unless I find or hear of some that are better

Be careful dropping size in your wheels. Brake systems are getting bigger and larger diameter wheels are required for clearance of the brake parts.
