Has anyone ever put tires on the back of a Dually that were not Load E rated?

I havent, but i run a 06 dodge qcsb cummins and got rid of the load d's the previous owner had just put on because I was having issues with them and getting them aired up properly to the point where they wear good..

bought load e's, you can air them up to spec, they ride better, etc.

Why would you not want to put the correct tires on the truck? They may be a bit more, but then the whole point of a dually is to haul and tow big stuff...?

I was getting ready to buy a set and was just wondering. They are a good bit cheaper but i put the E loads back on. Tire Kingdom had the buy 2 get 2 free so it was about the same. The only hauling I do is my boat.

Good decision...I got a similar deal last year in putting new rubber on my dually before i sold it...I found that the front tires wear about twice as much as the rears, so i just had to replace 4 rear tires.

I had over 90,000 on the back tires.

Don't go el cheapo on your tires, it will cost you more in the end. I have a F250SD and was tied up doing a few things so I asked my father to get it inspected. It needed rear tires and since I don't use it that much he had them throw the cheapests one they had on(and yes he is cheap). I found out when I paid the bill and was pissed, he sad "but you only drive it 5K a year who cares" I said but when I do it's usually loaded. 4 month later one tire bubbles, I had them replace both........ $240 Dumb ass move on his part to try and save $60.
