smart or not smart?

Not unless they're load range E. If they're not, I wouldn't bother...

I (unknowingly) made the mistake of running XLs instead of Load Range E tires once (on my Diesel Excursion) and will NEVER do that again; it was downright dangerous...

It's nice to score if/when you can, but passing in this case might be the smarter thing to do...and I know it's not easy with tires for our trucks as expensive as they are!
