tire load range

I bought a 00 excursion 7.3l a few mon ths ago. The previous owner had just put new tires on it. I was removing the rotors and I just noticed the tires are load range "c". I know that they are supposed to be "d" or "e". Can I get by with these or should I be looking for tires.

personally i will ONLY run "E" on my truck because that is what the truck was made to have on it, plus i tow quite a bit. I can understand running "D" if you don't tow anything. But C on such a heavy truck is pushing your luck imo.
