Best tires for towing

Any thoughts or suggestions? I'm looking for the highest quality tire for towing with my XK. My stock tires have 41K on them and I want to get new tires before I start doing some camping with my travel trailer this summer.

I would take a close look at the Nitto Dura Grappler. Here's a link with more details.
245/65-17 Nitto Dura Grappler

Thanks! While I don't do any serious off-roading I do drive in ice and snow going to and from the mountains. Does this tire rate favorably for off-road conditions?

The Dura Grappler has a lot of siping which helps in ice and light snow conditions. As far as off-road conditions go, the Dura Grappler has a semi-aggressive tread pattern which is good for ligh off-road use. If you want to run something a little more aggressive, take a look at the Hankook DynaPro ATM RF10.
