    i was just wondering if the load ratting is super important or not right now my 95 burban says factory load rating is E but tires are hard to find in that rating in a 35" and when you do find them they are not on the cheap side, but D rated tires are plentiful, i don't really intend to tow and i was just wondering if a D rated tire would be ok to put on or is there too much difference in ride quality and safty

    As long as you follow the manufacturers list load for the tire you will be fine.

    Its the load index number that makes or breaks it. As long as it has a load index of 120 or higher you will be ok. On the door placard it will tell you what it needs.(Next to the tire size) LT245/75R16E 120Q for example. Most larger sizes like 35's on up are LRD's with high load index numbers.
