Tow Vehicle tire load ranges
Im looking to replace the tires on my 2500 Ram it has a 265/70/17 E load range max load 3195@80psi. I want a larger diameter tire as these are small at under 32" I pull my camper on the beach during the summer and want a taller sidewall for airing down and wider footprint for pulling thru the sand. Its tough to find an E load rating in a 35" tire wich is what I want as im regearing from a 3.73 to a 4.56 to make life easier on this gasser. Most of the D load range tires are rated at 50-65psi and have weight ratings that the E rated tires have (3195+). I realize the main difference is an 8 vs 10 ply sidewall. Tongue weight on my TT is in the 1200lb area. Should I make sticking with an E rating a priority here?
