logicalthinker101 sweet, i ordered them! thanks for the input. I am going to be putting them on JEGS 16x8 Baja 8s with a 4" backspacing. Ever heard of any grinding needed for them? I can't seem to find an answer...which may be a good sign...!

WXman Yes, D will be OK. It's going to be a HEAVY tire but it'll be OK. Keep in mind that Treadwright tires are taller and heavier than a "new" tire of the same size. The retreading process adds about 8-15 lbs. to the tire depending on tire size and it adds some height too.

My father was running 265/75-16 Guard Dogs in the "D" load range and they were loud as hell on the road. Like, super swamper loud. But they were great tires. Everytime I've run Guard Dogs mine have been quiet but they were on other Jeeps besides wranglers and were a different size than what he ran.

Tire Grade Help!?!

I am about to order some Guard Dogs from TreadWright. 285/75r16. The problem is they are out of C grade for a very long time. They told me they can get the D and E rated ones within 2 weeks. Will D rated be ok for both on and off roading? I only go off road about once a week tops and its mostly mud, no rock. Please help, I Want to order today!
