New Tire Question

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?

Each tire has a different rating set by the manufature. You need to find out what the manufature has rated the tire at to see if it is enough for your truck.
