Duratracs in c or e load range?

Looking to order some new duratracs 265/75r16 for my '06 access cab. Question is load range c or e? I do about 20% off road. I know technically the differences between the two of them, ply, weight capacity, etc. Just curious, any bad experiences with the c load ranges? Will they hold up just as well as the e's?

Appreciate your input...

I rock C's because my truck isnt as heavy as a full size truck and doesnt call for a E but I can tell you I offroad a good bit and they hold up well, not problems for me and I get on some rocky terrain. Also you should get better gas mileage with the C's instead of the E's. BTW the rugged trail tires that come stock on most tacomas are a load range B I was told

I was thinking the same thing about gas mileage with the lighter c's. And tirerack has them with a nice mail in rebate right now.

Thanks for the input.

Get the C's

MPG, acceleration, ride quality will all be negatively affected by a heavier E load tire. I know lots of people run Load E on a Tacoma, but I think they are nuts.

My C class 265/75/16's duratracs are awesome. Not to harsh but can standup to some good off roading.

E if it's the only option. It's too much for a mid size truck. Our trucks cannot carry the weight a 10 ply E is designed for. All it does is make for a stiffer ride and more rolling weight.

I run C load tires on my patrol truck through some pretty nasty terrain with lots of sharp rocks. So far I have not had a tire failure due to sidewall damage.
