Looking for info on load E tires

Basically I'm looking for new tires for my wrangler and I have chosen the goodyear wrangler duratrac. Size is 285/75r16 and they only come in load e in this size. I've seen where people say load e is not good for wranglers. Looking for opinions please

Plenty of Cs in 15 and 17. 16 though can be very tough.

I had E rated tires on my Lj when I got it. It was the worst ride I have ever experienced. I would knock your fillings out going over RR tracks. I finally ditched them and have never been happier.

I'm having a hard time finding a 15" wheel with 4.5" backspacing so I can get c rated tires

Anyone have experience with the us wheel d window or pro comp d window? How's the quality? I had cragar d windows on my old wrangler that were nice but cragar doesn't have the 4.5" backspacing
