Default For those of you asking about tires...

I just got some Nitto Terra Grapplers for my F-250 and thought I'd give a quick report. They ride great, seemed to balance ok, and the price was great. I paid $568 for a set of 4 285/75/R16 shipped from Discount tire. The free shipping get them to my house in 2 days since they shipped from Columbus, OH.

I can update this thread as I put more miles on them, but I know some people were asking about decent At-style tires and these are awesome for the price. They are much quieter on the highway than my combination of Kelly Safaris and Michelin LTXs were. I think the LTXs had a bad wear pattern though.

Are those 10 Ply "E" rated tires?

I have them on my F-350. I have put about 10,000 miles on them, only rotated and balanced them once, so far they look like they are wearing very good! Mine are 325/60-18 load range D. I was very surprised at how well they did in the snow considering the width.

No, I got 8 ply D-range tires. I don't think I need E rating for what I'm planning to do.
