I'm having this debate as well. I'm moving to 285/70/17's at the same time as when I lift my 4runner. Can't decide if E Rated AT3W's are worth it or to just say with the C rated 6 ply as they are very capable based on what I am reading. I would mainly be out 4 or 5 times and currently I mainly like to drive roads or moderate off road trails to get to more isolated camping spots. That being said, I initially thought E Rated as I didn't want to limit myself in potential future endeavors. I had not thought about the harsher ride for my daily driver or if E Rated would ever really be needed due to the capability of the 6 ply tire.

$30 difference per tire plus and I'm getting 5 tires.

I personally would stick with the ďcĒ rated for your situation. I have the wildpeak in 285/75r16 in E rating as thatís the only option and I feel like itís just too much overkill for what it is. They were hard to balance, ride kind of rough and are pretty heavy. So I would stick with the lighter weight better riding ones especially if you arenít rock bouncin them then you should be fine and having a 5th spare if you ever need it then you have nothing to worry about.

I appreciate your feedback. I actually got the e-rated ones and so far they don't ride that bad at all. I'm stoked on my new suspension and tires.

I have the SL rated 265/75 wildpeaks and I have the perfect picture to show sidewall flex. I have never had an issue with mine. My wheeling I mostly mud and rocks. Granted its nothing as extreme as out west but I've never had an issue with them at all.

The photo above is at 15 psi
