    Curious what load range everyone uses on their tundras and the reasoning?

    I have read that e rating is better if your rim width is smaller so that you don't get the bubble effect on the radial tires.

    'E' LT 275/70/R18. Because they're 10-ply and I go places where I need to make sure I've got a better than even chance of driving back out.

    e: Nitto Trail Grappler, LT295/70/18. I like extra ply that gives extra protection against damage. Now when I go over pot holes, bumps, curves, etc., I don't cringe.

    Awesome after almost a year I got another response.

    I run the load rating D because that was my only choice for the size Duratracs I wanted
