Tires

Hey all. I was wondering what kind of tires and sizes some of you are running on your stock F-250. I am currently running the BFG Rugged Trail that came with the truck in a 265/70R17 size. I have sworn up and down by BFG All Terrains, but they don't come in an E load rating.
With all the towing and camping I do, these tires tend to load up with mud and I have a hard time swinging my trailer into camp sites that are "less than perfect".
Does anybody know of a good all terrain in an E load rating? I am looking for any input.
I would be willing to go up a size or two, depending if they won't rub at full lock.
Thanks,

I am running Cooper ATRs 265/75/16 E. I like them, great traction, good ride and handling, and they are quiet. http://www.coopertires.com

I run 305/70R16 load range D Goodyear Wrangler AT/S's on my 96, I had to shim the bumper out to keep them from rubbing in the front. They've held up fine under load. Only problem is that Goodyear discontinued them a few months ago and they're getting hard to come by. Next set I buy will be BFG Mud Terrains.

i have been told that "d's" are ok to use if you go bigger than stock size. which opens up the doors for more choices. i have bridgestone duellers a/t on mine and they are a d rating. going to 305/70's with a d rating in a few weeks.

Hey syko take a look at Nitto's terra grapplers. You can get a set in 265/70/17 for about 500. Also they are load range E which you're looking for. I've had two sets on my rigs and buying a 3rd set likely within the next couple of days for my newest truck. They surprised me in off-road situations especially mud.
