tires?

Hi,
I have a 1991 Ford F150 4x4 exteded cab with the 5.0L motor.
It currently has 159,000 miles on it,but is in good mechanical cond.
I plan to keep it till it dies!
I need some info on tire replacement.I use 235/75R15LT,I find the "LT" tires have a stiffer sidewall,at about 50psi.As I tow a 29ft travel trailer,they seem to handle better.
What brands do you recomend?I do 98% "highway" driving.
I also need a good All Season tire for the NewEngland weather.
Any recomendations?Thanks, Charlie

Might want to pick up an extra set of rims for it and swap on Blizzaks or other radial type snows for the winter.

Any tire that is a good combination of Traction (A, B,C, A being the best) Temperature (same grades as traction) and Treadwear (the higher the # the better) is the tire to go with.

As for tire pressure, contact the tire maker of whatever brand you buy for recommendations.
