    Anyone out there running E Rated tires on their Tacoma? Chime in with the good, bad, etc. How do they perform compared to stock?

    my buddy has 285/75/16 Michelin LTX A/T2's on his taco and they are E rated. i have driven it myself and they ride a whole lot smoother than i expected giving they're 10 ply. granted i bet they are heavy as hell, that'd be the reason keeping me from running E rated tires.

    Too late to change my mind....I bought the 265/75/16's for mine and they're E rated....getting them installed tomorrow. I threw them in the bed today and they are some HEAVY sob's....glad to hear they ride good. Anything has to be better than the crappy Dunlops that came on it!!:eek:

    I run BFG ATs that are E rated. I lost 1 mpg. It is alot of unsprung weight. They ride fine. They will get you out of trouble too. They are 285/75/16. I have noticed they wear like iron. I guess this is due to the light weight of the taco compared to a full size truck.

    Good to know...I went with the LTX AT2's, a little less aggressive, but I figure they'll last 75K or more??

    I had Load E BFG's on my Dakota. Great tire..... However, your truck will ride like a dump truck with these E rated tires. Unless your hardcore off road its too much tire.

    i don't have them on my Tacoma yet but I had some on my old Ranger and they were awesome. They rode like rocks but were great for offroading, they were tough as nails. I will get some for my truck when the stock tire wear out. I had some Yokahama Geolander's.

    I have E rated on a 04. When I pull off road I am not worried about glass and rocks. I noticed no loss in ride quality

    yep, 285 duratracs. I think they're great. Especially when you have a lift and getting a flat tire would be a bitch the e-ply are practically unpenetrable

    Keep in mind that the down side to load range E tires having thicker ply walls is that it is harder to get traction on the trails when aired down, which is why we stick to D's on beadlocks!
