    Hey guys. I got my duratracs in today in the mail. There 265/75/16 load c. I got them in the back bed to go to the tire store to install them and there super mushy lol. Like I can take my thumb and put it though the sidewall if i wanted to. I know people said on here that there alittle light but i never thought this. I know it doesnt have air in it yet but i can even more the thread around and almost separate it lol. I was wounding with the difference in between the load c and e load.. I know the c is 45lbs and the e is 54lbs but would the e be a more durable tire. Would the side wall be more stronger and not get punctures as much with a load e. Im thinking about sending these back and get load e. Thanks guys for listening and hope you can help.

    Depends what you use them for I say. If you have them for show or just normal driving with a little off road they are fine. I just got mine today. Buddy had his for awhile and know problems.

    I know what you mean. I even put my car key to the thread. (Not in of course, just touched it, Im not that crazy lol) and the thread was already coming off lol Even with my nails i could take it off. Seem way to light for me. I'm thinking the load e will be better and not seem as mushy.

    If you look at them they seem fine but idk. Like I can push the tire all the way to the ground. Thats how mushy they feel. I know again no air but I have never had a tire do that.

    Does anyone know the difference in the duratracs in the c and e. I know the weight but what about the ply and stuff. I cant find it on tireracks website where I ordered them. Seem like load e would stand up to more abuse if i offroad.

    they would take more of a beating but i think you lose some reguler driving comfort.thats the main difference besides better sidewalls

    yeah. I was told that too. I dont offroad too hardcore, no heavy rocks and stuff but they just seemed very mushy. Maybe with air they would be better but just buy touching them, it doesnt seem right

    That is true. I have grabbers in 265/75 and they load e and 57lbs. Heavy. Mpg does suck. I'm thinking that even those the duratacs are gonna be load e, there only 54lbs. I dont know if the saving 3 lbs is gonna really help at all since these have a beefier thread pattern or not but I hoping so.

    Would a 3 lbs less on the new tires help my mpg. I know The thread is more beefier and aggressvie and my grabbers were just a at but do you guys think i would save alittle mpg being there alittle less heavy at 3lbs each tire but there still load e
