D's ride better than E's. On my Superduty I wnt up one size (BF Goodrich ATKO's) to 285/75R16's. Load capacity of them in D range is like 10 - 20 lbs per tire less than the stock size E range tires, so I did not lose much capacity..

D range is what I think for the winter will be better driving.
Is there such a thing a high-performance D-load range tires for SUV's?
I see them on Denali's and Escalades, but these aren't 3/4 tons.

Have 265/75/16 BF Goodrich TA All Terrains on thier now. Won't be towing until the Spring, but when I do, no more than 8,000LBS.

Always E's on real trucks. If you want ride quality buy a car.

I just bought a set of Michelin's from Costco, if you have one in your area, I highly recommend them, best prices around... Not sure if mine are D or E range, but you get all this included in the cost:

Mounting
Lifetime balancing
Lifetime rotation
Lifetime flat repair
Lifetime air pressure checks
New rubber valve stem
Costco Wholesale's road hazard warranty
and so on...

I have 285/75R16 Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 2500 GMC "D" load range. Alot quieter the BFG's. And price wasn't bad either.

R Addiction: Those were on my short list. Thanks for the input. Were the the Terra Grapplers or the Terra Grapplers AT?

Michelins all the way load range.

BFG Long Trail are OK too.

Terra Grapplers...not the AT's. Tires wear well. Michelins are my second choice. Call Mitchell (MAMATRYED)
