I'll be towing for the first time with my 94 REW with tow package and I'll prob. need new tires before I leave. I'd like to get something for towing first, but also I'd prefer a white wall tire. Have any of you found anything that's great that fits the bill?

Also, any other advice would be greatly appreciated. I'll be towing a car on a tow dolly plus a lot of 'luggage'. I'm expecting about 3800-4100 ish pounds.

Thanks!

Look for a stiffer sidewall tire, so load capacity will affect the sidewall strength. Some are super soft and sloppy when towing.

Higher load rating is better and higher speed rating is generally better also as both lead to stiffer tires which will give you more control under load. Tread with bigger blocks and smaller voids will flex less also, but be worse in snow and ice.
