Truck tires

I will be replacing my tires soon and I thought Iíd ask here and see if yíall have any recommendations on tires.
My pull vehicle is a 2016 ram crew cab 4x4 with 285/65/20 tires. Iím leaning toward Michelin but Iím curious to know if there is a tire at that size with a load rating higher than E. I have not found one
Thanks

I run Transforcers on my 2017 3500. I have been running this for the last 2 dually. If I remember they are Firestones and I get them from local hardware store/garage in town.

The transforce are what I have on now. They were the tire that were on the truck when I bought them new. I prefer Michelin but Iíd really like a tire rated higher than E

Most if not all 20 inch wheels are rated around 3200 lbs max, so I do not believe you will find a 14 ply sidewall tire in those sizes. Plenty of tires around 3500 lbs in the E rating though.

Iím came to the same conclusion
Thanks

Iíve only got 25k on transforce ht tires my truck came with on 18 inch rims, and they are almost worn out, so Iíll watch this thread for suggestions. Iíve had good luck with Michelin in other sizes so baring other suggestions will probably go that route. We have a trip scheduled for the Jan Feb time frame and I suspect my tires will be shot after the 3 or 4K we Iíll drive on that trip. Without switching to 19.5 inch wheels I donít think you can go higher than a E load rating.

I will most likely get the Michelin
