I run 295/70/17 E rated trail grapplers and I love them, even though they are just as heavy as 35s. They ride very well when i set the air pressure between 32 and 35 psi. My jeep sits outside the Tire Shop were i sell and install tires and all the customer is sell these to love them as well. The ride quality is well worth the weight. I would like to do 35s soon and will be adding gears for those.

God, how I wish the Internet would quit lending the impression that the trail grappler is anything other than a heavy hunk of crap.

That tire you're running is for a 3/4 ton truck pulling a 12,000 lbs trailer.

I'm aware of load rating is but I also balance and install these tires everyday. They are just as consistent in uniformity as a Michelin tire.

We were not talking about what they go on or what they intended. The gentleman asked for what an e rated tire is on a jeep I like and I gave him my opinion. Not everyone on here rock crawls. A lot of us use our jeep on the street 80 percent of the time. This is a great, quiet, aggressive road tire. Which is a necessary product.

Some things are better left unsaid, and we are both entitled to opinions. So okay you stated yours just try not to piss on others as you go.

I ran some heavy BFG A/T E-rated 265-75-16's on my 2-dr for 6 months or so before I sold them to a guy to put on his ranch truck. Great pickup tire, but just didn't ride well on my lil ole wrangler with my X shocks. I ended buying some Rubi take-offs w/ rims and am much happier with the ride.

I'm running Toyo MT's in a 35, which are E rated. I really like them, haven't had any issues with them, on or off road. That said, do I wish they were D or even C rated? Yes. But I'd still run them again when these wear out.
