Default Tires?

What kind of tires should I get on my Suburban for towing my 6,000lb travel trailer I just got? Load Range C, D, E? I also use this truck for my DD in the winter and off roading so I would like keep the ride comfortable. Right now I have standard load range tires, I am thinking of getting BFG A/T's with a C or D load range.

A little stiffer than C, but not as stiff as E
I wouldn't put less than a D on suburban in any case. They will be alittle firmer on the road but won't roll as bad in corners. I would think you will find it an improvement in ride.
