Bigger tires are always better. They help keep trailer more level without a drop hitch. Bigger tires have more tread surface and carry load better.
I never had any trouble towing except for small 12 inch tires on a Chalet A frame pop up camp trailer on a hunting trip in a 2011 outback. both factory tires and spare failed on the highway.
The were Carlson original tires, I had to stop and replace them with Goodyear heavy duty tires.
Always use shift paddles on hills both up an down. This helps avoid excessive up and down shifting. When it down shifts I lock it down. Also use engine to hold down hill speed.
