Tires

Can load range D tires be run on a 96 OBS PSD?

If more is better, then way too much is just about right

I can get a hold of some Cooper Discover S/T 285-75r16 load range d tires dirt cheap from a guy. I have e range on the truck now. I drag a lowboy trailer with 4 wheelers most of the time. Sometimes a lowboy full of firewood.

You should not have any problem with "D's" if thats all the weight your going to pull.

Check the "max load single" rating on the tires. Take that times 2 (because you have 1 on each side) and that would be the maximum amount of weight you can have on each axle.

More than likely those tires will be pleanty heavy duty enough. The weight rating on those tires will probably be very similar to a 245/75/16 E tire. Larger tires are always rated for more weight capability than smaller tires in the same load range.

Its not just what you haul, but also what you do with the truck, there is more than just weight rating to an "E" class tire, I personally won't run C's anymore I plow snow and want the 10ply tire.

I ran "C"'s last year and they got chopped up pretty bad. a bit of sidewall roll, and squat in the tire can do alot to the treadwear. I think the price difference on tirerack was like 10$ a tire for the E's

The tires you'll see in my sig are low range D. This is the highest load range I could find for my 16.5 wheels in an A/T tire. Once I wear these out I'll get different wheels and get atleast load range E. Now if I go with 19.5 wheels, which I'm hoping for, then I'll have F or G range tires:Thumbup: Anyone here running 19.5 wheels on their SRW?

Tires

I put some serious miles (like 60,000) on my last set of 42" swampers (C's)
You just have to rotate them religiously.
