315/70R17 in E range?

Like the title says, trying to find some 315/70R17's in E range, so far only finding D's. Anybody have some suggestions?

That is all that I found as well when I was looking for tires too. However, if you are wanting a tire that is about the same size I would recommend going to a 35X12.50X17. You will be able to find load range E tires in that size. Toyo is one company that makes them in 35's.

A D that big will support just as much as a smaller E. I have also not found an E in that size either though.

Isn't the Hankook dynapro atm RF10 an E? Looks like a great tire.

I pull a 5th wheel so was hoping to get the extra sidewall stability.

I was looking at the Nitto 355/60R18 for the load rating as far a pounds go. It was the best I could find just could't afford the price right now. Check TireRack.com they had them for $209 a tire a couple months ago.

Dreadnaught, do you like the Hankooks? How do they wear? I'm looking at getting a set, but haven't found much feedback.

ive got almost 4k miles on them, and they are beginning to develop a |\|\|\ pattern pointing backwards around the rear tires. but other than that, they are wearing good. i just gotta rotate them.
