I'm completely happy with my load C Duratracs. You will read and get opinions both ways, but unless there is a reason why you need the heavier tire, go for the C.

2470 lbs. 50 psi 18/32" 44 lbs.

3195 lbs. 80 psi 18/32" 50 lbs.

I think the guy you are referring to also said he knew about sidewall damage from off-roading prior to the blow out when hauling.

As said earlier, unless there is a reason to go E, C is the better choice.

If it's the same thread I read, he had done some off-roading in rocks prior to towing. Duratrac sidewalls are thin compared to some other tires. If you would have more peace of mind with the E rated, certainly get them. To me the extra weight, and possible harsh ride isn't worth my need for them.

Personally, I'm not interested in 285s. Don't get me wrong, they look great, but that is where it ends for me. I enjoy not rubbing at any lock and being in Canada I can't get rid of my mudflaps due to rust issues. 265s still look really good on a 2.5-3" lift, so for no hassle, I'll stick with them. I will say to check out OZ-T's build. We're running the same lift, but he just stepped up to 275s (not Duratracs).

They're wearing pretty well. I've heard some have them wear out by 30k but these still have good life in them. If I remember I'll get a pic of the current tread.

Sorry for the delay. I'm actually just under 28k on them right now. Hope this helps.

I've got 265/75/16 C duratracs. Just about 17k miles on them, and they all have a little more life than that previous picture except for my rear drivers side. Those miles include two trips from alaska to portland and portland to alaska. I'm not sure but I assumed that would put extra wear on them compared to normal miles.

Also just so everyone knows even the C load range Duratracs are capable of hauling/towing more than what our little Tacomas can handle. Fyi.

I have same size your looking at load c. Unless you drive a heavy ass pickup and plan on hauling huge loads of anything load c is more than plenty.
