Yes they are. The difference between D and E is 300 pounds. I have loaded my truck down to the max and have had no problems with my load range D tires.

If you plan on towing the E's are the only way to go. You can be fine with a D though, the tread life isnt as long but its also cheaper to buy a D tire than E.

If you are doing some “heavy duty” towing, I would recommend the E rated tire. If you are not using your truck as a tow rig for heavy loads, the D rated tire is fine. I know a lot of people who have the D’s on their trucks....I am not aware of any problems.

Yes, look at post #5, the red dually. The "pig" as we call it. Last time i saw em they had 84k and should make it to 100k. No lie, ive never seen a tire last like those. They are D rated holding up a 6.0L and he hauls a trailer with nearly 12k day to day with his business. And those are 37-12.50's on stock rims.
