BF Goodrich A/T KO differences

I am about to order tires for two trucks.. a 2002 F-350 4x4 long bed and an 03 Excursion...

I will be getting 9 tires in all as I need a spare.

I am looking at the BF Goodrich AT KO's in 285/75/16 and found there are two. Now granted the main difference is load rating D vs E and speed rating Q vs W...

When I do tow, with the 350, its at max 8-10000 lbs including trailer...I do head up to the snow a couple times a year in both, and the occasional fire road in both.

Ratings, reviews and specifications for BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO tires

Ratings, reviews and specifications for BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO tires

Lots of highway..I'd say 70% highway. I am not going to say that I dont drive slow, or dont drive hard...but I wont say that I dont !!!!

Does any one have any specific opinions on the difference and which I should lean towards?

I always buy load range E and thats all. They are a harder tire and the take a higher PSI so they last longer.

Load range D tires always wear faster.

Thanks for the input. I guess I am more concerned with a stickier tire than mileage. I would prefer the trade off of a couple thousand miles for a better handling tire...

Both BFG models linked are RMA approved. There has been some issues in Canada regarding this designation and their laws which has created some confusion. IN the states though, they are all Mountain Snow Flake Certified.

Your Truck requires a minimum load rating of 123. Based on this alone, the Load Range E is the best option as it carries a 126 load index. The Load Range D only carries a 122 load index.
