    I have 35” Ridge Grapplers loaf range E and absolutely hate the ride but really like the tires if that makes any sense lol. I am desperately trying to find a hybrid or an AT tire in a 35” or 315. I know the KO2 is an option but would like other options as well. Currently on a 1.5” ST1 but installing the Mopar 2” on Thursday. I like the Grapplers but they are really heavy paired with the Mopar bead-locks. I need something lighter with more road manners.

    KO2 315/70/17 or trail grappler 35x11.5r17 (an MT)
    Are pretty much your only choices

    If you're willing to go with a D rate tire there are many options.

    Otherwise, in addition to the KO2, there is the TOYO MT that comes in a 315/70r17 C. They are very heavy at 76 pounds.

    There is definitely a sweet spot in the market for more C rated 35” or 315 tires. Makes me wonder why manufacturers ignore this market when a lot of 35” buyers are doing it for the mall rubicon and never go on any sort of dirt patch.

    Yep...especially large opportunity for a light or avg weight 37" load c mud terrain. Milestar offers the 38/13.50/17 in load C and BFG offers KM3 in 39" load C. NOBODY offers a 37" load C mud terrain.

    I believe the Nitto Ridge Grapplers in 285/75r17 are within a 1/2 inch of a 35, and available in a C. Although, with the new mopar lift, u might want to consider a light 37" tire, there seem to be more C load options available that size.

    I think the majority of 35s end up on pick up trucks. This is probably the reason for the load E and F majority.

    The reason you can’t get any C rating tires is Cost. It’s much much cheaper to make the tires in the higher load range rating that way they can be sold for all applications from a liability standpoint. Using a E instead of a C is a rough ride. The opposite is a huge liability.

    you the c ply tire can still have a triple layer sidewall so will be very strong, but have more flex than an e ply, which when aired down will actually grab rocks and curl around weird angles better, can be really effective when tackling parking stops at the mall, or obstacles on trails.. I am running e and they are very stiff, if I could of gotten a solid 35” tire with aggressive tread, that was not noisy I would have done it.. the 315/70/17 KO2 is a great tire and comes in a C ply.. now that i know how stiff and heavy my nittos ridge grapplers are, I will definitely think harder about the KO2 next time around.. but like the opp I love the nittos, despite the flaws.. car drives straight down the lane, no noise at all, look great... and I can’t wait to get them in a trail.. just got them out in this week and heading out to the dessert for an over night trail run in a few weeks

    that tire is only 33.86, my 35x12.5r17 ridge grapplers are 34.76, so full inch difference but I will say my 35s are huge in my opinion, can’t see how guys run 37s for daily drivers

    If we could fit 15” rims we would have many choices

    Good Year Duratracs? They are not a true 35” but a 315. Great tire for the snow although highway there are some vibes. They looked better on my JK.
