Tires 285/75/16

Need some advice I have saved 1500$ for tires . My jeep is a 03 rubicon with 4 inch lift currie steering and 285/75/16 on moabs. Question is I'm looking at km2 but that size is e rated the claws I have now are d rated . I like the set up great for dd and playing on weekends but will the e rated tires work ok? Not worried about ruff ride just like make sure they will wear ok or should I just get some 15 soft 8 and. C rated 33 in 15 inch rims?

E rated tires will work fine. Only draw back is they are stiff as far as ride quality, and they are heavy. Really they are overkill for Jeeps since they are a light truck tire, but they will work fine.

X2 ... Just run the same air pressure in them as your current ones, and they will be fine.
