I have an 'o3 4x4 and was looking for a larger tire load range E and the only thing I could locate was a Michelin 285 75R16, but they were said to be a softer compound and would not give the mileage of a more standard tire. I could find quite a few larger models in a load range D but did not want to go down thinking I would loose too much in a safety margin as far as load carrying capacity is concerned. Rolling resistance is greater due to lower max tire pressures hence lower mpg. I went from BF Goodrich AT which came standard on my truck to the Yokohoma Geolander H/Ts model . I only have a couple of hundred miles on them and can only say they are much quieter.
