I think Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ mud terrains are available in that size. they wear like Iron, and have great traction. check 'em out. Also, I think Toyo M/T's will have what you're looking for

Anything bigger then a 265/75-16r are Load range D on the Coopers. That being said you also have to go by the weight rating on the tire.

265/75-16 LR E are - 3415lbs

315/75-16 LR D are - 3195lbs

For the record my buddy's dad has gotten well over 60k on a couple sets of 315/75-16r Cooper S/Ts on his F250 ext cab long bed PSD. Mine with 10-15k still look new.

Why do you want load range E?

The MTZ don't mind being loaded

I have a set of SSR radials, 35 by 12.5 on a 16.5 rim and they are E rated tires. They were the only E range mud tires I could find for a 16.5 wheel, I would think that they would make them for a 16inch wheel also.

i want load range E because there beefier and stronger and can put more PSI> which hopefully will help with MPG compared to a D.

PJ Dirt Grips. Mine are 35*12.5R16.5, but the 16s are rated E too. Available in both 33s & 35s.

reptil...How do you like those PJ's? I was looking around at those online, and I like the increase PSI you can put in them over the standard D rated 35" tire. I am currently running on 315/75/16 BFG A/Ts...They do well and are very quiet...But I wouldn't mind a little extra in the mud and they do look sweet, as long as the road noise and tread life doesn't suck.

Beats me, ive only had em on there for about 2k miles :D

I had 35" BFG A/Ts as well before these, but needed something more aggressive. I like the higher load rating for towing my wheeler around, and so far the rain performance (no real snow yet) has been great. They definitely hum like any other mud terrain, but theyre nowhere near as loud as the iroks on my other truck.
