And we've already established the fact that the JK has a maximum GVW of around 6,000 lbs. So "P" or "C" rated tires are all you will ever need for any job you can do with the vehicle.
Like the above poster said...the only reason to buy the "E" rated tires is if you need the stronger sidewalls for rocks. Otherwise they are overkill and will cost you more money every time you drive the Jeep because they are heavier.
....... I don't know why everyone is bringing up Towing, Hauling, 3/4ton, 1 ton, Dually's.
I have to say that ANY tire is up to the job that any jeep can do towing or load wise, However- it's a fact that 2 ply sidewall tires do not hold up well at all off road. And you don't have to be "Rock Crawling" to damage them. One rock out in the middle of the woods is all it takes to ruin your day, even a small stump or stick can damage a 2 ply sidewall. There will always be some trade off when it comes to which tires and how you use your jeep
