    yes, you will lose mpgs and yes D-rated will be fine. the D-rating refers to how many plys are in your sidewall and belt package to carry more weight... the negative is that they weigh more

    I love the BFG All-Terrain tires to much to care about mpg now. I sure hope they ride nice for everyday and highway driving as this truck is my daily driver. Has anyone ordered wheels and tires from customwheelsdirect.com? 16x8 Raceline Renegade 6 w/ 265/70R16 BFG All-Terrain at $1,471 and i think thats shipped. Can i find a better deal esle where?
