    Is there such a thing? Like MT tires but so many of the D and E load range tires are such heavy boat anchors. Looking for a 15X10.5X33 btw. Thanks

    Keep in mind that with many vehicles, the Load Range E tires can be run at lower than the full listed psi because they are lighter than than the rated capacity. This lets you vary tire pressure over a wide range to match the road, trail, and surface conditions. I'm running Load Range E 255/85R16 KM2 at just over 40 psi around town and the ride is pretty plush in the 80. If I have a long road trip planned I'll add a few more psi for better mileage. Airing down for the trail provides a substantially longer footprint

    I have Goodyear MTR/K 35s in a C range, they ride great and are only 64lbs. Maybe check with them.
