I need 33's for my truck but on a 16 inch wheel. I'm having a hard time finding anything in this size that's not load D or E. Looking at Grabber AT2, Dura's and the Kuhmo Road venture. AT/KO is way too much money help me out

would Load D really effect me that much as long as i inflate properly? I'm just use to putting the correct size tires on the correct vehicles.

In an all terrain type tire D load range is about as low as you are going to get. Many of them are even E load range. D load range will be fine, but I wouldn't go any higher unless you have no choice.

How about some Toyo A/T's in D load range:

I'd go for Nitto Terra Grappler's, but they are E load range in that size.

Nitto Terra Grapplers. Mine are D's and they ride fine. I keep the back tires at 30psi and the fronts anywhere from 32-35psi.

Why buy tires for a truck that is just a sinking ship? I would get rid of it and get a better truck.

You can still offroad just avoid mud and be more cautious.

i have the same model as you and i'm running the duratracs 285/75/16. I've got the T-bars cranked and they fit but they rub on the sway bars when you crank the steering wheel all the way.
