I got load range D because I do approx 1000mi off road each year usually solo and wanted some additional durability and puncture resistance. Off road is mostly Mojave desert. These are daily drivers here in LA- 100mi/week highway and similar city. Aside from a slightly stiff ride these have been really great. I don't think i will get load D next time. The price was almost $100 cheaper per tire than BFG etc and they have warranty. In any event they look great and have so far performed great. Not sure if wet performance is really good or not- honestly i am still getting used to an SUV vs 2dr sports cars I have had all my life.
