    I have seen these as well. I haven’t found much info or reviews about them.

    I am not sure if you are still looking at the Pirelli's but I am leaving in 5 minutes to have a set of 265/75R16's mounted. I can let you know how they are and/or take photos for you if you want.

    Yeah, let’s see them. I’ve never seen a set installed on anything...

    Perelli make great race tires, if that means anything to you.

    I recently installed these in the 285/75r16 size. I got these tires because they are one of the few tires in this size that come in a C load rating. There are very few reviews online but almost all of them are positive. With that said I have been told that Pirelli has stopped importing these.

    I hope they are still available in the future. Just used mine off road and they were amazing.

    What's wrong with E-load tires?

    Other than being heavier nothing. I just think they they are overkill for a lighter truck like ours. My goal was to find the lightest wheel/aggressive tire combination.

    Nothing. C rated tires are rated for lighter loads than the P rated tires that came on the truck. But they do have tougher sidewalls which I think overall makes them a better off road tire. The C rated tires are really intended for SUV's like Wranglers that aren't intended to carry heavy loads.

    Some guys are afraid that E rated tires will ride too harshly on lightweight Tacoma's. I agree that E's aren't needed and in most cases a P, D, or C rated tire is just fine on a Tacoma. But if you figure out which tire pressure works best even E rated tires aren't that stiff. When I left the tire store they aired up my E's to 50 PSI, just like they would on a full size truck. The ride home was firm, but I lowered them to 35 PSI and they are wearing evenly and are the best riding tires I've had on the truck.

    Yea, way overkill for a truck that weighs as much as a Tacoma. Seems to be the latest fad but they kill mileage for no reason and you have to run them aired low unless you want a crap ride.

    Not talking crap, people like what they like, I just didn’t want to put commercial truck tires on my mid size

    I don't have a problem with mine. I had 265/70/16 Firestone Destination A/T C-load:
    20180530_135052.jpg

    And they ride the same as my new 265/75/16 BFGoodrich KO2. These are 1 inch bigger, and are E-load. They didn't even affect my MPG's.

    People in Texas seem to like Pirelli Scorpion tires in 275/35/20 on their F-150's. These tires are quite common here.

    It’s just not needed on a Tacoma, I’m not saying they’ll cause problems. You probably had the C and E psi’s the same or close right? Well in the E your less than half way to full pressure.

    As far as not impacting mpg’s, in a similar tire an E can and usually does weight around 10 pounds more than a C. That’s generally enough to cause a drop in efficiency but I’m glad you avoided that.

    Yes, people told me to stay away from E's, but I pulled the trigger, and I'm happy that they didn't affect my gas mileage by much. They didn't affect the steering either, so I'm really happy with the result.
