285 is getting to be a meaty tire, and only 6 lbs difference, good pick

I do not need a E-rated 10ply tire as I only pull a 3,000lb boat and drive dirt roads and pastures.
there are a few 6ply rated 285 tires out there that weight around 42-46lbs

Same here, I don't need 10 ply.
and one thing that i think is funny, when people get 10 ply tires for the 3,500 lbs load rating, but our factory wheels are only rated 2,200 to 2,500

3500 per tire? that seems a bit like overkill :unsure:

2nd fil with maybe 25% back roads 17.83 mpg
3rd fill 99% + interstate 19.92 mpg, getting better :) hopefully just tirea breaking in.

I do have a slight intermitten vibration in floorboard on interstate, I have pulled over and crawled under checking everything out, all looks good.
Feels like side of the road rumble strips about 15%, very faint felt on floor board, nothing else , consistent about every second for a half a second, been trying to figure it out.
Cv's feel good, driveshaft feels good, front end looks good.
I tried my previous oem wheels and tires and still feel, so not the new tires.
I am debating on taking off the front axle drop and trying.
