Not if you will using your truck for driving only. 10 plys are what you need when you tow, haul, work your truck etc.

Don't go below "D" rating

I have been with guys in the woods with 8 ply tires.... One time we each had half a load of wood in the beds. 3 of us, the Dodge and I have 10 ply the other Ford had 8 ply. While climbing out of a canyon we all had to put them in 4 wheel low to get out. All most to the top we had to rut it in to get up. Well 2 of us made it out that night, the other riped 2 side walls out and we had to get him in the morning. Les Schabb would not cover his tires as he was told that that may happen with 8 plys on a diesel. Won't have them on mine....Good luck

12.5s might be too wide for a stock rim whats the rim width?

I will go with Choctaw on this one, if you drive around all the time with nothing more than yourself and you dont have a scratch in your bed, you really dont need E range tires. If you do any type of heavy towing you will want E range tires.

the only time i drive my truck is basically when it is connected to the trailer, its a 27ft enclosed trailer with a 2500 car in it, we have went on two long trips, one to seattle and one to los angeles area on the same set of d range tires. not one problem so far.
