10 ply is more expensive it will last longer. cause there are 2 extra "plys" or coats how ever you say it. correct me if im wrong.

I think it has to do with weight capacity. A 10-ply is a "E" rated tire???

I also say it will last longer. Also I think that is what it is called for. Check you truck's specs. I've seen the 8 ply on toyota tacomas. Same tire size but just weaker.

Jarrod.

Don't put to diffrent tires on the truck. Why do you want 265/75's over 235/85's. They are probably close in height, But the 265 will be wider. run all four the same size.
As far as ply's go. The 10ply is a stronger tire with a higer load rating. "E" over "D"=8ply. Either will do. 10ply ride a tiny rougher but you can not really tell.
