Default 20" tires

How much weight are you towing? Flatbed trailer or an RV with a large frontal area, small ultility trailer?

I towed a lot with my 20's and they were great. I got tired of paying for 20 inch tires so I went to 17's. Can't tell the difference.

I pull a 34 'fifth wheel rv and I figured the 17"small rim with smaller tire would pull better going down the road more revolutions would make the tranny not work so hard. I have been use to big tires in my younger years with trucks all jacked out of shape now looking the opposite when getting older .but not use to all the electronics in the new trans and motors

I haven't had a problem. And I know folks hate these P rated passenger tires. I plan on upgrading to 275-65-20 LT tires shortly. But I was surprised the stockers weren't to terrible.
