    Hi all, I'll be doing a cross country trip towing my boat, and I was wondering about switching to these tires. Everyone raves about the 255 for off roading, but would they be okay for towing? Would they being a little thinner be an issue?

    They should be fine for towing. A lot of trucks with tow packages came with Firestone destination 245 70 16 (I think, can't remember my stock tire size).

    They do fine. Haven't had any issues pulling anything with mine.
