Default Tire suggestions needed

I know everyone has a different idea about what's best. But I am just looking at buying a tire with better traction than stock for on road use only. No off roading. I want to get better traction for when I pull my boat. I have 2wd

Any ideas?

Thanks all.

General Grabber HTS... Top rated light Truck Tire, I have had them for 3500 miles. Very impressed. Great Ride, Great Stopping, Great Traction, Good Driving and a great deal, rather cheap compared to others. Especially for their rating..

Agreed, Michelin LTX are a great tire for on-road only. Excellent in the rain, snow, and ice. They'll last forever though so get use to them!

PS to OP: my dad uses them on his tahoe, towing a 28 foot traiiler. has been in a few situations where she soil was wet or muddy ( i know ur not going offroading) and has gotten out very easily even after sinking due to hooking the trailer up

This is true, they got me on and off of several muddy work sites. And through 8 inches of snow on several occasions.

I had them on my truck and my father has them on his 350, awesome tires, great grip, wear great, and does look good. There a little more buck, but in my opinion there worth it, I got through the snow fine with those tires in my 2wd, going through some stuff 4x4s were getting stuck in.
