Duratracs in Load Range C Question

I know this has probablly been hashed a thousand times on here but I am getting ready to order some Duratracs next week in size 265/75/16. My question is will Load range C hold up for mostly high way driving, light off roading like beach driving and highway pulling a single axel DJ trailer?

I had Load C range Duratracs in 265/75/16. I did 95% highway driving, hauled motorcycles, pulled a 6,000 lb boat/trailer. Held up great. Never rock crawled or anything like that so can't comment on how they perform there. I did take a 1-2 MPG hit though compared to stock so be prepared for that. They weigh 45 lbs each, so your rolling resistance weight will increase by 32 lbs. Other than MPG I had no complaints, best tire I've ever run.

i just realized i live kinda near you. ive pulled arond 5k lbs with my load c's for 1k miles straight

i see where you mentioned driving on the beach with them. They kinda suck on the beach unless you bring them down to 12-15psi then they are awesome. I have around 10k miles on mine and they still look new.

That's where my set of Duratracs came from. No complaints and would recommend them to anyone.
