15" vs 16" Load C vs D

Hi all,

For those in the know are 15" Load C tires starting to dry up? It appears most of the newer tires come in VERY limited or NO option for 15" wheels.

To top it off, it looks like more and more tires are moving to Load D or higher. As a jeeper, will we in the near future just have to move to a Load D tire or will some folks still make a Load C?

Looks like most of the newer tires are mostly 16", 17" or 18" variety.

How bad is a Load D tire going to be on a light weight jeep YJ?

Most of the smaller sizes are car tires and the ratings for them (IE a small Toyota truck) wouldn't warrant a load range C truck tire.

Something like 235-75/15 should be available in load range C.

I have E on my XJ and they make it ride like a log truck.
