    Default Tire/Ride Question

    Hi,I have a quick question for everyone on here.First off the tires I'm running now are my new winter tires (Cooper M+S P265/75/16).The truck rides a little rough but not to bad with the torsion bars cranked to near level and my Rancho RS9000XL shocks set to soft.
    Now the tires I want for spring(Dick Cepeck FC/2 LT265/75/16 Load range E)...How much do you guys think these tires will affect my ride?Will it be too rough?We do have bad roads here in my part of Michigan.Thanks for any input

    Well it looks like load range E means 10 ply and my current tires are passenger tires.The FC/II's only come in Load range E in that size tire.The other tires I considered were BFG All Terrains but they also only come in Load rang E for my size.Anyone running any Load range E tires on a 1500?If so what psi do you run and is it a rough ride?
