I see a lot of complaining of comfort with e-load tires. I had 315/75R16 Nitto Mud Grapplers, which where E range, on my JK. Once I lowered the tired pressure to around 30psi +-, it was all good, no complaints. I want to run the same tire (in a 17) when my Jeep arrives..but are these complaints from people expecting a Cadillac (probably why I see the influx of 20s+)....or is the JL even that much lighter that it makes the tire that much stiffer? I love my Mud Grapplers, lol, and they only come in that heavier load.

My tires are BFG 35x12.5R18 load range E. I have the front set to 30, and just lowered the rear to 28. I don’t think the ride is bad at all.

Yeah, I was expecting the worst yesterday when I had a set of load range E's installed. I'm currently at 34psi all around and the ride is a lot better than what I was anticipating. I read and read numerous folks opinions before deciding to take a chance and personally don't see what all the fuss is about.

I agree with @CanAmMick -- I just got the same BFG 35 x 12.5 but R20's running at 32 in the front and 30 in the rear and they're smooth as butter.
