I know load E tire can carry more weight than load C, by having stiffer sidewall construction. I asked BF Goodrich and Bridgestone if the tire E will be more cut resistant than a load C, and their answer was same : has nothing to do with cut resistance, just can handle more weight. I talked to Interco, and they said that a load C will cut easier than E. who's right? I mean Bridgestone and BF Goodrich are not new to tires, but Interco seems to make more sense. if the tire has stiffer sidewalls to carry more weight, than it should have stronger sidewalls and more cut resistance. or else why would DC equip those MTR tires ( 12000 pounds capacity ) on a Rubi if the Rubi weighs a little less than 4000 pounds. In comparison, a Sahara comes with Load B ( I know those GSA are more street tires ) . All those 31", 32", and 33" on 15 diameter are load C, and many people use them in serious Off Road. Any feedback? I forgot to mention that the person at BFG said their tires have a three ply sidewall construction for added protection, and that's regardless of load rating wether it's C, D, or E.
