my new tires a few questions?
I was offroading in colorado and damaged 2 tires. I limped it into town and got a new set of BFG a/t 285/75/16. They only had load range E in stock and I didn't have time to wait to order load range D. They don't make that tire in load range C. I'm thinking the tire might be so stiff its not going to form to the road when in 4x4.
I'm wondering if there is any problem running load range E. I notice the ride is rough and the tire doesn't seem to form to the road even with low air pressure like 27 lbs.
I also cannot believe the loss in power! I was running 265/75/16 and had plenty of power.
i'm wondering should i keep these tires and re-gear? how much do do new gears cost ?If i stick with 285 should i try to sell them and get load range D?
Or should I just sell this set when i get home and go back to 265/75/16? I'm thinking this might be cheaper.
