    Anyone running the "E" load range? Any issues with ride performance or handling with 80 psi? I'm interested in upgrading to 265/75/16, tire rack only has the E.

    Unless you off road or haul excessively, load range E is overkill. Even if you do get the E's, you will not need 80 PSI in them, it will ride like a hay wagon. For every day driving, you'll probably only need about 1/2 that. If it were me, I would not run load range E on a Tacoma unless the extra plys were needed for off roading. They are also very heavy and will sap your gas mileage. That being said, lots of people here are running that load range and mechanically there's nothing preventing you from doing so.
