Was looking at a set of Nitto Ridge Grapplers and in the size I want, I have 2 choices. C or E rated tire meaning a 6-ply or a 10ply. I would guess a 6 for a better ride but most tires I have had were E rated. I don't tow much or off road much but was wanting input form you guys. These will be going on a 17" Method wheel.

Thx!

The C rated will ride better and should be a little lighter. If you do any heavy off roading the E's tend to have better sidewall protection against punctures. If not I vote C

I went from E rated Toyo AT2s to the XL rated Nitto Terra G2s and an very glad I did. The Toyo were fantastic for 79k miles but these Nitto ride so much nicer and weigh less. I tow my 6500 lbs wakeboat quite often and these XL rates tires are great.

Either the C or E will work for your truck as mentioned. The C will be somewhat lighter and have a softer ride but both are safe for your vehicle.

I am in agreement with the previous replies, 6 ply will be fine for normal use and ride better. I chose 10 ply for my truck, simply for the extra peace of mind when overloading.

I wanted to go with the 6 ply, but Toyo only made the AT2 in 10 ply for my tire size. Getting them mounted today so hopefully they ride nice!

I went 10 ply and I wish I had gone 6 ply. The ride isn't as nice as it used to be.

I need to replace tires in the next few months and am debating 6 ply vs 10 ply. When I tow the camper (4200 lbs), the payload is maxed out. I'm debating ride quality vs load. Any input?

IMO, the tire size (sidewall height, overall width) has more to do with ride and drive quality than the ply rating, in combination with the suspension/shocks. Personally, I prefer the 10-ply rated sidewall, especially if towing often.
