Tires: 8 ply vs 10 ply

My truck is an 08 F350 SD crew cab King Ranch 6.4 diesel LWB. It has a 4" lift. I now have 37.5 x 13.5 x 17's 10 ply Toyo's. I would like to go to BF Goodrich T/A KO's in 37 x 12.5 x 17's in the all season tread design, but they are only 8 ply. Should I be worried about the differance in the ply rating. I don't do any heavy off roading or heavy hauling.

Thanks,

Nash

Nope, if your not a heavy hauler or off roader i wouldnt worry about it. If you wanna run em then go for it. Pics of your truck would be nice.

That's what I was thinking also. The local place that sell's them won't in stall them on this truck because it's a 350 and the recommended tires are 10 ply. I'll try and get pic's this weekend.

Thanks

I run 8 ply tires, no problems here....not that my trucks as heavy as yours either, but I do plow with it, and thats alot of weight.
