Tow Vehicle tires

Just to keep everybody thinking , when you try to make a tow vehicle out of a "non tow package equiped vehicle" you must also get the correct tires for the weight you will adding to your vehicle. i think all tires have a speed & weight rating so be sure you purchase the correct ones. One other thing to remember if you purchase a "factory equiped tow vehicle " and use it as a daily driver, you will not get mileage mfgs advertise on tv, in fact if a mfg advertises 20 mpg in thier pu's, when that vehicle is set up for towing w/ 3:78 rear gears you may get 16 +-, with 4:10's you will get 13 +-. Just an FYI
