I would go with an E Range tire at least, nothing less.

Well I know that but should I worry about the actual specific weight a tire can hold or just any E rated tire? Cause I've seen some E rated tires hold around 3000 and I've seen some hold 4100.

go for the 121/123 rating or better not less.
depending on sizing some D's will hod more than E's, however the newer load rating system on the tires goes by weight.
