Do i need E rated tires?

I'm gonna get some new tires soon and was wondering if i needed E rated or 10 ply tires like the place told me? I got a 2008 f350 SRW and the biggest thing i tow is a 2 place quad trailer so i wasn't sure the price is alot higher for the 10 ply.

these trucks are supposed to have E rated tires, if your not towing anything you never exceed the capacity of D rated tires so you would be fine. But latter if you get any type of heavy trailer, you'll exceed the D's real quick and wish you would of gotten Es

What he said...I dunno much about tires, but I know this: A heavyweight truck ain't heavy at all with lightweight tires.

you can run D rated tires but you will not be able to A haul heavy load and B you will burn through a set of tires alot faster with D rated

E rated wear better and you will get better mileage with the higher PSI too

Also if you run D rated you will run a low tire light as well.

You need tires that match the OEM or better. Weight rating is important... and if you had a blowout and got in an accident as a result... lots of lawsuit coming your way.... not to mention the insurance company(s) might blame you or give you a hard time.
