I found there is an improvement in lateral stability with E rated tires, but if you only tow for 2-3 weeks a year, IMHO the P tires will be fine as long as you stay within the weight ratings. As for gas mileage, I didn't notice any difference between the P type and LT / E rated type.
Thanks for the info. I'm likely going to wait till spring before getting new tires but will keep what you said in mind.

I did find a set of Cooper Discoverer AT's that are rated as C load LT's. The load rating is 116 whereas a set on Michelin P rated LTX M/S 2's have a load rating of 114, so not much difference according to that, but would the sidewalls be stiffer in the Cooper's being they are C rated LT's?

Simply put, 'E' are more stiff than 'D' which are more stiff than 'C'.

Keep in mind that the softer the sidewall, the more they flex the hotter the tire gets. Overheated tire = BOOM! If you're towing, don't skimp. Figure out what you need then step up one or two grades. At the end of the day, you'll rest easier.

Has anyone put the Nokian Rotiiva AT on their F250? Local tire chain store says the owners are using them on their own vehicles.
