yeah the toyo has excellent grip on the street, last around 45K miles and do great in sand and mud. I only went to nitto duros because toyo didnt make the 10 ply in the size i run now or i would have never changed.

ok well i went out today and found some tires but none were load range E. all were D's. everybody at the tire places said it wouldnt matter because a 265 75 16 load E and a 285 75 16 D are about the same in load capacity. i didnt get any tires because i wanted to make sure that the D could realy handle the weight and i dont wanna blow out a side wall. so does anybody know if there's any truth to that? and if a 285 75 16 D will hold up?

I dont know much about that, but i would try a different tire store. I get mine from small tire shop, they order anything i want so they should be able to get you exactly what you want. I wouldnt settle if you tow alot, these trucks weight alot then you throw weight on the back end. D prob wont blow out but they would prob wear wrong im not sure though
