Load range D tires?

I know it has probably been asked before but here goes is there any issues running load D tires on the superduty's i know they lose about 400 lbs per tire load rating but at 3300 lbs per tire that seems to be still decent. I don't tow much at all maybe in a pinch i tow a 10k trailer with a bobcat basically just my tools my truck weighed in at 8800 lbs on the scale with me and most of the tools i carry but it is still stock may put on a few lbs when lifted/tires.

Also if you have the TPMS, the light will come on and stay on because you can't run the air pressure in a D load range tire that is needed.

There are load range D tires that have the proper capcity for the Superduties. I run Nitto TG's on mine, but of course it is not an 08

Yeppers and it gets pretty annoying seeing the indicator lit up all the time too
