18" Load Range E tires???

'05 F250 4x4. Came with 17" wheels. Some knuckle head put the 18" KR wheels on it - but didn't replace the spare! And I can not find 4 original 17" rims for the truck (8 bolt), so...

Who makes 18" E load range tires? Have 275/70/18E. Does not have to be that exact size, but close. And don't want to go bigger.

So far, finding the Conti bricks (wouldn't take a new set if you PAID me to run 'em), The Michelin A/T2 (had 'em before/love 'em!). Not finding much else.

Can anyone suggest anything in the size I need? Anything any better than the Mich A/T2? Thanx

I replaced my Conti bricks with Toyo 275/70/18E Open Country AT. What a difference! It's an outstanding tire. Got them siped too. Highly recommended.

BFG AT has some 18's with E rating. I currently have 305/65, but I think my first set was stock size. Levi

The additional traction in the snow and ice was very noticeable to me.

I have Toyo M/T's in E load range and love them. I have also had the A/T's and put 15,000 miles on them before I sold the truck and the tires still looked brand new. I highly recommend Toyo tires.
