E rated tires aren't that
bad on a half ton if they aren't over-inflated. I put E-rated tires on my mom's 03 expedition because she bought a heavy camping trailer. I was worried about the stability with the short wheel base, P rated factory tires, pulling a heavy trailer through the mountains in Oregon.
When you're towing it really helps to have a sturdy sidewall.
