I’m due for a new set it tires. I will be occasionally towing a 4000lbs boat and drive a 2016 sle AWD. Are there certain tires that would be better? I can’t really find much online about it which leads me to believe it’s not a big deal and it’s more important to get a tire that will perform well. I was looking at the Michelin Defender LTX, but they are more expensive and wasn’t sure if It was worth it. Figured I’d ask though. Thanks.

I'd think as long as the load rating is at or higher than needed, the tires are of good quality, and you have a suitable tread pattern for the environment you'll encounter... good to go.

Tires with specs which meet, or exceed the ratings of those originally installed on the vehicle will suffice. That info should be on a label affixed to the driver's door or door jamb.

I never thought of that. That makes it easy. Thanks.

I tow a travel trailer at close to the max GCVWR with the Michelin Defender LTX M/S. Good traction and they take the load really well. Tread is holding up well at ~40,000 miles thus far. I feel confident towing with them. Haven't yanked anything out of the water on a wet ramp, but they've seen plenty of ice, snow, and rain.
