But with the shorter sidewall is it necessary? Your thoughts on this subject. Since I'll be doing a lot of traveling in the near future, I might go ahead with the extra weight and strength just to be on the safe side. The little extra weight should be very minimum on mileage.
Again, do you think they're needed with the 20" wheels?
Thanks in advance.
Sounds like you're going to be towing your TT around quite a bit. The load range e tires might be overkill, but I always tend to error on the side of caution, especially when approaching max payload of the truck. At the minimum, I would get a set of load range d tires. I know there are tons more options for the stock 20"ers in the load range d category. I'm sure the load range e tires will have an affect on my truck's mileage unloaded, but for me, it's worth the trade off. I've only put 7,750 miles on my truck after one year of ownership.
