18 inch tires....not E rated

I've been searching for 18 inch tires. I have a (5) set of 18 inch Addicts rims that are currently mounted to the stock Duelers. The Duelers have had their run and new meats are in my future. I've read that E rated tires are heavier and more stiff than other tire ratings. My problem is that I want an aggressive all terrain tire (think Duratrac) but it seems that all my likes are E rated. Are there any 18 inch AGGRESSIVE all terrain tires that aren't E rated or am I just going to have to compromise and go the E way ? I bought the Jeep used and it came with these wheels which I love! Now, I've learned quite a bit from this forum including that 18 inch tires are stupid expensive, however I would really like to keep the rims I have. Any suggestions/information would be greatly appreciated!

Look at Cooper AT3, BFG TA KO, Nitto Terra Grappler, and maybe Toyo Open Country AT. I believe all can be found in a non E rated A 275/65/18 should be a bit over 32" but they come larger as well.

you should pick up a set of 16" or 17" alum Jeep wheels and then tire possibilities are endless. You should be able to get a set of 17" jeep wheels for $150-$200. 18" wheels really limit tire selection.
