I need tire suggestions!

I've had a lot of tires on different vehicles over the years. I had been looking at the Yokohama Geolander AT-S in the 265-75-16 size. Originally was told that they were made in the "E" load range with white letters. Now I can't find them. Wanting to get opinions on what you guys are running in that size and load range and has to have white letters. Appreciate any info.

Look at Firestone Destination ATs...great tire, lots of miles and great price.
General Grabber has a great load E white wall too, I think they are HHTs

In that size I had BFG All-Terrain's, worked great for me. Then went to 295/75/16 in the BFG All-Terrain again, now onto Nitto Trail Grapplers 35x12.5x20. For the size the Nitto's are very quiet but at that 265 size I would stick with the BFG's. The BFG's were all Load E rated.

I've used all of the above brands except for the Nittos. Currently running Firestones. No reason other than they were laying around. Haven't had any I like more than others, but will say that the BFGoodrichs are expensive.

I just got some Michelin LTX AT2's last week in a 285/75R16 and so far I really like them. I got the white lettering facing out, I think it looks good on the Ex.

My vote is also for Michelin's they're more expensive than others but the ride is superb and they last a long time
