Good price.Ended up pulling the trigger on At3s. Point S had a buy 3 get the 4th free going. Discount matched the price and got them for $262 installed/ea in 35x12.5r17. Tires should be here next week followed by a week long trip on them. Will post back with my thoughts.
Tires of the same size are going to have the same size contact patch with the ground. To support more weight in the same area, the tire is going to experience more pressure. Higher rated tires are built to withstand more pressure safely. If you put more weight on a tire it's going to bulge under the weight until the internal pressure is increased. Hence why higher rated tires are only rated to hold that weight at certain pressures, as pressure decreases so does safe load capacity.What could be the reason you run such high pressures on a load range E tire?
