    I apologize as I feel this is probably asked many times (I searched and found a lot of contradicting threads).

    So the question I have is with this tire what is recommended, C or E? Some people say E is too heavy and provides a really stiff ride and other say C will wear too quickly.

    What's your thoughts and why?

    I have no wear issues with my load C duratracs. These trucks are small enough to not have a problem.

    C is plenty for the Tacoma (and rated for far more than the Tacoma will haul). I'm running P-Rated Cooper AT3's and have no issues with towing or hauling. They're a little lighter than I would have liked but they are more than adequate for the Tacoma.
