    You really won't notice a big difference between C and E rated if you run the psi that suites your ride. I mentioned in another post about running E rated tires on my Jeep Rubicon and it originally came with C rated, I just ran them at a lower psi and checked the tread footprint using chalk. The sidewall height is the same for both and with the weight of the Raptor over a Jeep I would think you would not notice. With an empty bed I would just run them lower than the front and air them up if your loading the truck up

    With the majority of 35" tires being a E range there are a ton of them on Jeeps since it really is the only option in some manufactures and I have talked to many owners who said it improved the ride quality due to less sidewall flex and it made the ride feel more stable

    If you read the reviews on TireRack for the Cooper Discoverer AT3 XLT you can see the 50 reviews on the tire mounted on different trucks. You can check the BFG KO2`s in the 315x70x17 C and E there are 589 reviews. The 35x12.50x17 only drawback is they have raised white lettering, I mounted mine facing inward and blacked out the white lettering

    I hear ya. I had a bad experience with some Continental E rated tires, street tread too. I had to air them down to mid 20's to get them to squat enough not to dislodge a kidney. Then they were too squirrely.
    Nothing but stock tires for me, until we get some C rated in stock size, that aren't mud tread.

    TireRack has the BFG 315x70x17 C rated and there is a $120.00 rebate on a set of 4. They have to be bought at an authorized dealer to get the rebate which is just about every big name seller, COSTCO included

    We had a set of no name E rated tires on our shop truck and one of the young knuckleheads would always fill them to the max psi on the sidewall 75 psi every week when he check the truck for needing any maintenance. You talk about your being squirrely and I can relate to that. Whenever you were on a wet road or going 65 on the highway they had a tendency to breaK loose if you hit a decent bump or going into a turn you could drift the truck just by yanking the steering wheel hard left to right and putting your foot down on the pedal. Scary at time when you didn't expect it and fun at times.
