    I have E rated 285/75/16's I am in the middle of a nightmare right now trying to get these things balanced. I thought I had it figured out but nope. i have them on procomp 7089's and the balancer is calling for like 16oz of weight. dont let my story discourage you because ive hear a ton of good about these tires... but right now I would take my bfg's back in a second.

    e rated on a tacoma is going to effect ride quality. extremely stiff tire made for 3/4 or 1 tons running a plow or heavy towing. nothing a stock tacoma can tow would require having an e rating.

    I'm runnin 275/65/18s since the rims that came on the truck were already 18s. All Duratrac 18s are E load. I have no ride quality complaints. My ride quality complaints would've been about the lame ass 3 leaf nonsense that came on it. That was way worse and lame than any tire thing. No towing here but like the extra plys to defend against flats.

    My 275/65/18s weigh 50# each and I have 5 speed and my mileage avgs about 18-20mpg. Am not experiencing balancing issues nor do I have gobs of weights on any of them. Performancewise......let's just say that there is no danger of this thing "sudden accelerating" unless dropped out of an airplane or going off a cliff.

    I have E load 265/70/17 cause that is all the shop could get in when i wanted them and i don't regret it but i am considering switching to the C load when i need new ones just to see if it rides any better or get better mileage. Overall you can't go wrong with either. I love them

    Ya but the day i got my tires it started snowing and E load was all they could get me that day so they gave me the same price and stuck them on. I would have been stuck without new tires for sure. The E load has not beat me up to much. I have roughly 20,000 miles on them and they have been great. Taken them on the beach and deep snow with no problems and they did great last weekend while hunting having to pull out a stuck dodge ram. What PSI do you run. I usually have between 40- and 45 depending on what i am doing. They were no even worth airing down when i drove on the beach

    Just so you guys know running E rated tires doesn't necessarily mean your buying a "stronger" tire or one with a thicker sidewall with more plys than say a C rated tire, it only has to do with load ratings all of which are heavier than our little Tacomas can handle. Just curious why anyone would knowingly choose an E rated tire. If you were told otherwise by the tire sales guy than you just taken for your $$$$.

    Tell me what size 18 inch Duratracs come in C load. The wheels that came on the truck were already 18s. It rides no worse than the C load NTGs that came on it. They are same weight as the C load NTGs. There are no C load 18" Duratracs. Because I didn't feel like buying new rims too.

    I'm specifically talking about 16 or 17 wheels, which is what 95% of us run.
